This paper presents a middleware architecture for personal robots applied to various environments. The architecture allows a robot to consistently integrate environment-oriented applications with its original and familiar characteristics for its user. The familiar characteristics and environment-oriented applications tend to be developed independently. However, the two kinds of functions should share sensors and actuators to generate consistent actions. To this end, we have analyzed the
more &raquo; ... ship between robot actions and their mental effects on the user, and have designed middleware, called the "mediator," to play the role of mediator by dynamically selecting either: 1) sequential execution, 2) time-sharing execution, or 3) concurrent execution. We had an experiment to simulate the mediation, and to estimate the familiarity and efficiency.
