Abstract The relationship between action and response are very important for what people feel to objects. In locomotion, it is considered that there are differences between the robot which makes people feel living organisms and which do not make them that. In this study, we investigate the effect of delay time for response to action with an autonomous distributed robot. This experimental result shows that the subjects feel the strongest the locomotion of the robot like living organisms under the appropriate delay time condition. It suggests that the delay time is the one of the key factor of impression of life of the robot.
