As we know well, robots working with us must be human friendly. The meaning of human-friendly
includes behavior patterns of robots. In this sense Robots’ movements must be elegant or gentle,
which never give us unpleasant feeling. In this seminar, I will introduce our new project named

Our project is going to utilize such traditional motion for robots; motion design. The project is just
