Abstract(in English) This paper describes human-robot interaction in the Ubiquitous Home over the course of a 16 day-long experiment. Its purpose is to describe the human cognitive activities involving a symbiotic robot with dialogue interface within domestic settings. The participants were a couple in their 60's. Analysis of video data indicates that (a) the participants continuously used the robot's dialogue interface, and persevered within this despite the performance of the voice recognition system (b) the participants checked out the robot's function as a tool and gradually came to regard the robot as a companion, (c) fixed instruction expressions increased the use of the dialogue interface for the light controls, while the participants employed both the dialogue interface and the remote controller for the TV and light controls.
