In this paper, we propose a position estimation method of an entertainment robot in a performance stage. A position information is needed to produce contents of an entertainment robot performance. First, the performance stage is realized by a CD (cadmium sulfide) sensor matrix with a constant distance. Then the proposed position estimation uses ON/OFF information of a CD sensor in a performance stage. We confirmed that the position of the robot is detected with an maximum 4cm in position

Ultimately, the effectiveness of the proposed estimation is assessed by experimental results of a robot in performance stage. Also, in the proposed system installed by a robot performance contents, there is no necessity to mount a position estimation device on a robot; therefore an advantage of our system is that an entertainment robot commercialized by robot vendor can be utilized in our performance stage directly.
