We have developed a simply designed robot for the purpose of the psychological research confirming human recognition of the boundaries of robot agents. The physical boundary and the agent’s boundary of a robot are considered to have different shapes in human recognition. Results of the experiment indicated that we controlled the agent’s boundary successfully.
