Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We propose a method for conveying emotions with light-emitting diodes that are embedded in a cel- lular-phone-type teleoperated android called Elfoid. Conveying the human presence plays an important role in communication to a partner in a remote place. Conventional systems are insufficient in terms of human presence. Elfoid is designed to transmit the presence of a speaker to a communication partner using a camera and microphone, and the soft exterior of Elfoid provides the look and feel of human skin. To transmit the presence of the speaker, Elfoid sends not only the voice of the speaker but also emotion information captured by the camera and micro- phone. Elfoid cannot, however, display facial expressions because of its compactness and the lack of sufficiently small actuator motors. Therefore, we use light-emitting diodes and generate color patterns to represent speaker’s emotion estimated by the camera. We focus on emotions that can be conveyed by Elfoid through light emission. In experiments, we investigate emotions conveyed with Elfoid by emitting various patterns of light.
