This research targets modeling of cloths existing in real world. In our approach, an autonomous robot actively collects the information of cloths, for instance, it observes a target cloth handled by a person or handles the target by itself. The collected information is translated into generalized 'knowledge', and is applied to some daily assistance such as folding clothes which are roughly placed on daily environments.
