We can make a robot suitable for users' preference by designing its appearance and interaction through subjective evaluation. However, for evaluating users' impressions using real robots, it is necessary to build many robots with various specifications such as height, which is time-consuming and costly. In this paper, we propose a robot design methodology based on augmented reality (AR). We conducted experiments to evaluate a robot's head size using both AR and real robots, and similar results were obtained from both evaluation experiments in an environment with simple background. Next, we conducted experiments to evaluate a robot's head size using both AR and real robots in a real environment, and similar results were obtained from both evaluation experiments. From these experiments, we can conclude that the CG-based robot evaluation is as effective as that using real robots. In addition, the AR technology enables us to evaluate the robot in a real environment, which realizes more realistic evaluation of robot design without building real robots.
