Abstract

This paper presents the study on the throw-over movement informing a receiver of the object landing distance as an example of the informative motion for human synergetic robots. This study aims at generating the robot movement from which a person (receiver) can easily predict the object landing distance by implementing the features of movement variance depending on the distance. We would like to find the clue to design the friendly robot movement through this study, focusing on the swing, fore swing and back swing, in the throw-over movement concretely. This paper describes the analysis of the measured movement data of a person (thrower) and the classification based on the features, and it shows the result of two evaluation experiments to generate the movement which makes easy for people to predict the object landing distance. When the results of the movement analysis and the evaluation experiment are included in the throw-over movement design of a humanoid robot, a person as a receiver may estimate the object landing position more correctly so as to be easy to receive the object safely and certainly.
