Abstract
We have developed a mobile robot for a foreign language education. This robot, VANI is remotely controlled through the internet. A teacher in the remote site can talk with a student in front of the robot, simultaneously moving the robot. Compared with typical study through a phone, this improved presence turned out to increase students’ interests, expecting better educational performance. Another point we tried to get in the development is to make the robot with minimum cost for early commercialization. In order to do so, we drastically removed the unnecessary parts and used the cheapest components in building the robot. As a result, this robot has been successfully commercialized and some are now being used in private institutes for foreign language study. This paper will explain the hardware and software system of the developed robot.
