Abstract This paper presents a communication system between humans and character agents, Agents on Robots (AoR), which combines the ability of expressions of character agents with the presence of robots. This system attaches an AR marker on mobile robots and allows users to communicate with CG agents through a Head Mounted Display (HMD). In our experiments, we compared the difference of impressions between AoR and communication robots which have the same surface appearance. As a result, we found the item gActivityh for AoR in the questionnaires to be statistically higher than that for a robot. This result support usefulness of our proposed system.
