Abstract
When a robot recognizes human behaviour and tries to perform the same behaviour afterward, a human behaviour model which is highly applicable in different environment is required. In this paper, we limits the task field to hand operation and describe a novel method of constructing a behaviour model of hand operation using data-glove and HMM, which abstracts human hand action from four attributes ``which hands'', ``state of grasping'', ``hand motion'' and ``relative position of target objects and hands in 3D space'' along the time series. We also describe a method of performing the same human operation by robot with 9eye stereo vision system and 3D template matching, and finally we show the experimental results using a real robot.
