A modular cognitive model of socially embedded robot partners for information support

Jinseok Woo, János Botzheim and Naoyuki Kubota

In order to implement information support of daily life to human, smooth human–robot interaction is needed. The interaction with a robot partner requires many elements including verbal communication, non-verbal communication, and embodiment as well. In this paper, we propose a Cognitive–Emotional–Behavioral (C–E–B) model derived from current research in cognitive science to realize the robot’s personal features leading to a socially embedded robot partner.

Aims and scope

ROBOMECH Journal focuses on advanced technologies and practical applications in the field of Robotics and Mechatronics. This field is driven by the steadily growing research, development and consumer demand for robots and systems. Advanced robots have been working in medical and hazardous environments, such as space and the deep sea as well as in the manufacturing environment.

Mechatronics is the synergetic integration of mechanical engineering and computer science with electronic and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacturing of products and processes. As systems become larger and more complicated, insight is required to uncover the important role of Robotics and Mechatronics by system analysis and integration.

Mechatronics is a practice-based technology unlike any other technology. There are a lot of products in the market which require Mechatronics to achieve increased performance and a user-friendly interface. The scope of ROBOMECH Journal encompasses all practical aspects of the theory and methods of Robotics and Mechatronics.

The scope of the journal includes but is not limited to:
1. Modeling and design
2. System integration
3. Actuators and sensors
4. Intelligent control
5. Robotics
6. Manufacturing
7. Motion control
8. Vibration and noise control
9. Micro/nano devices and optoelectronics systems
10. Automotive systems
11. Applications for extreme and/or hazardous environments
12. Other applications
