Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) People establish and enhance their social relationships through sharing experiences with others. Among media used to promote such experiences, a human-size humanoid is the most promising medium. In addition to capabilities of other media, such as the ability to collect and provide information from the Internet and via ubiquitous sensors connected through a network, a human-size humanoid has the potential to help people share experiences or information among them owing to its shape. It enables people to accept a sense of humanlike expressions or emotions, wishes, and so forth. We have recently developed a human-size humanoid, called "Robovie-IV," as a ubiquitous medium to enhance co-experience. This paper discusses the design requirements of Robovie-IV and introduces an overview of its hardware and software architectures. There is also a brief description and preliminary results of an experiment that we are currently conducting with Robovie-IV, in addition to conclusions.
