Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a wearable robot with vital sensors. So far, we have been developing a wearable partner agent that makes physical contact, which is generated by combining haptic stimuli and the agent's anthropomorphic motions. The haptic stimuli are adjusted and controlled corresponding to the user's posture and surrounding context. However, neither is sufficient to recognize the user's physical and emotional conditions. Thus, we extend our system by adding vital sensors, especially a blood pressure sensor, to estimate the user's physical and emotional conditions and achieve elderly care and support based on the obtained user's information.
