FACE Andorid Expressions

The FACE robot is capable of mimicking  facial expressions. The basic expressions used for the generation of more complex facial states are inspired by the six basic expressions identified by Ekman (Anger, Disgust, Fear, Happiness, Sadness, Surprise).
Working on this direction we are trying to improve the FACE credibility focusing on a field which is largely explored in the Japanese robotic community under the umbrella of “the Uncanny valley” paradigm.

This video shows the robot during the preliminary test of the control library, where the basic facial expressions were tested and the face tracking algorithm was calibrated.
