Features of AIBO
To realize AIBO’s greatest feature, the autonomous behavior,
AIBO has various functions and capabilities. There are also other
ways to enjoy AIBO other than as an autonomous robot.
A four-legged robot
To comfortably coexist with people, AIBO was designed with the
four-legged appearance of a dog or cat, animals which usually
have long-term, friendly relationships with people. It walks on
four legs which are jointed and moves them to sit or lie down. It
also uses the legs to express its emotions or entertain you with its
favorite performance.
Various senses
AIBO has sensors corresponding to human senses, which allow it
to perceive its environments and communicate with people.
• Touch:
AIBO’s head is the sensor for receiving personal
contact by touch.
• Audition:
AIBO receives sounds through a stereo microphone.
AIBO has a perfect pitch and responds to certain
combinations of musical tones (commands) that
deliver instructions to it.
• Vision:
AIBO has a built-in color camera and distance
sensor which are used to look for its favorite colors
or to avoid obstacles.
• Balance:
Using its acceleration sensor, AIBO recognizes when
it falls.
Communicating w ith people
AIBO speaks to us by way of musical tones (robot language). It
also expresses its joy or desires through body language. The eye
lights are used to express emotions or give a yes or no response.
You can also initiate communication by presenting a ball to
AIBO. When approving or scolding AIBO, you can pat or hit the
touch sensor on its head.
