Domestic robot with voice communication aid which is controlled by human eyes only is proposed for disabled and elderly persons. It allows taking a look the surroundings of the domestic robot using cameras mounted on the domestic robot. It also allows enjoying conversations with the surrounding peoples of the domestic robot using voice output capability of the domestic robot. It can avoid obstacles autonomously with not only camera acquired images but also ultrasonic sensors. If users look at the top left and right as well as bottom left and right, then the domestic robot goes back to the previously designated home position. Such functionalities are confirmed with normal persons together with key-in success rate, blink detection accuracy, comparative study on key-in success rate and process time between fixed (conventional) and proposed moving keyboards.
