This study aims to functionalize a child android robot so that it can actively collect deep communication data through physical and multimodal interaction with humans. The collected human’s reaction data are utilized to sophisticate each body element of the robot to induce more plentiful and deeper reactions such as unconscious and emotional ones from humans. In addition, the collected data are organized by being linked to the robot actions at the time to investigate what kinds of robot actions are effective to induce humans “obscured”reactions in social context.
