There have been recent attempts to control home electric appliances and devices using robots. Information can be shared with robots by using finger pointing. Finger pointing is used as a means of communication with people around. However, when a person points at an object with a finger, position of the object cannot be indicated accurately. In this work, we studied the error between a target point, which a person tries to point at with a finger, and an observation point, which is actually pointed at. We also proposed an error estimation model using a fuzzy integral to estimate and correct the error at the observation point.
