Abstract: In this paper, we focus on performance comparison of gender and age group recognition to perform robot’s application services for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). HRI is a core technology that can naturally interact between human and robot. Among various HRI components, we concentrate audio-based techniques such as gender and age group recognition from multichannel microphones and sound board equipped with robots. For comparative purposes, we perform the performance comparison of Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) and Linear Prediction Coding Coefficients (LPCC) in the feature extraction step, Support Vector Machine (SVM) and C4.5 Decision Tree (DT) in the classification step. Finally, we deal with the usefulness of gender and age group recognition for human-robot interaction in home service robot environments.
