SEER: Simulative Emotional Expression Robot

“SEER” is a compact humanoid robot developed as results of deep research on gaze and human facial expression.
The robot is able to focus the gaze directions on a certain point, without being fooled by the movement of the neck. As a result, the robot seems as if it has its own intentions in following and paying attention to its surrounding people and environment. Using a camera censor, whilst tracking eyes it has interactive gaze.
In addition, by drawing the curve of the eyebrow using soft elastic wire, I were able to enrich the expression of the robot as if it lives with emotions. With the facial motion tracking and mirroring ability, it gives us connecting impressions.
