At Cambridge University, they created a robot named Charlie, who is able to express various emotions with the help of facial expressions. The creator of the robot, Professor Peter Robinson says that the goal of the project is to understand how comfortable people can communicate with an emotional robot.
Behind the facial expressions of the robot are 24 motors that imitate the movement of facial muscles on the human face. Charlie reproduces the mimicry of his interlocutor with a delay of three minutes. Help him in this video camera, removing the person’s face.
The facial expressions of the robot are quite realistic, but it is still far from human facial expressions.
