Abstract(in English) To realize natural human-robot interaction, we consider that a robot should have at least two functions, that is, real-world auditory scene analysis by a robot to understand the surrounding environments, and robot expression to send information to users intelligibly and naturally. These functions should be highly-robust against environmental changes because the robot has to work in dynamically-changing noisy environments. This paper addresses information integration to improve robustness of these functions since we believe that such a integration approach improves robustness, and describes four research topics based on the integration approach - integration of sound source separation and automatic speech recognition based on missing feature theory, sound source tracking by integration of two types of microphone arrays, multimodal expression by using prosodic information and head colors, and new speech function using a directional speaker.
