Abstract

We propose a method for generating facial expressions with a mobile projector built into a cellphone-type tele-operated android, called Elfoid. Elfoid is designed to transmit the presence of a speaker to a communication partner in a remote place using a camera and microphone and a soft exterior that provides the look and feel of human skin. To transmit the presence of a speaker, Elfoid sends not only voice but also facial expressions and emotion information captured by the camera and microphone. Elfoid cannot, however, display facial motions because of its compactness and the lack of sufficiently small actuator motors. Therefore, we use a mobile projector and generate projection patterns to represent facial expressions estimated with a camera.
