Abstract

Social robots are developed for social interacting between humans and robots by various ways. One of the ways is sharing cultural performances such as singing, dancing, and acting. Various technologies are required for developing cultural robots, and one of the most important things is generating contents. We develop a user friendly action editing system with graphical user interface. It is comfort method to generate long contents of performance according to musical notes or scenarios. Using this method, we generate action data for some performances with real robot system in the theater.
