Robots have become close to being part of our daily lives.
‘Cleaning Robots’ are ranked number one for ‘Most Wanted Home Appliance’ and ‘Appliances That Have Exceeded Expectations’, according to research done by the Communication Design Research Institute.

The communication between humans and robots would involve a robot that can communicate without causing people to feel uncomfortable or ill at ease, and a robot that could understand and effectively learn about its environment.
A world in which humans and robots exist side by side is a very real possibility for the future. At that time, the definition of the word ‘humanity’ may even start to change. It will be an age when we have not only communication between humans, but also communication between humans and robots.
