In this research, the design factors of the robot’s aural and behavioral interface and the level values were to be established through reference studies and case analysis. The aural interface, the voice factor was divided into the gender-male, female, and androgynous- and the age-middle-aged, young, juvenile- while the sound effect factor was categorized in accordance with the categorization of the prototype that actually made sounds. For the behavioral interface factors were to include gestures and movements; the gestures were grouped into the purposes and the degree of the freedom of joints while the movements were grouped into the possibility of movement and the methods of movement
