In a society in which people and robots cooperate together in the same environment, robot technology (RT) services will be required to consider user intent and situation. This paper focuses on RT ontology providing RT services appropriate to the situation in Kukanchi — “interactive human-space design and intelligence.” A user’s direct requests are defined as a “main task” and incidental tasks required to achieve the main task as “tsuide tasks.” This paper proposes and introduces RT ontology and details validation experiments for certain “tsuide tasks.”
