This paper introduces a design method of emotion behavior for pet robot. In order to increase
the amusement, the pet robot also design with ears, mouth, facial expression plane, and vision
system, so that it can do some emotional behaviors. This paper is also proposed a hand
gesture recognition algorithm on the pet robot, that makes it can do naturally interaction with
human and learn the emotion. These applications are designed and controlled with a FPGA
(Field Programmable Gate Array)-based processer. From the experiment results, we know the
pet robot execute the human’s command as very well.
