Eye contact is an effective means of controlling human communication, such as in starting communication. It seems that we can make eye contact if we simply look at each other. However, this alone does not establish eye contact. Both parties also need to be aware of being watched by the other. We propose a method of eye contact considering these two conditions for humanrobot communication. When a human wants to start communication with a robot, he/she watches the robot. If it finds a human looking at it, the robot turns to him/her, changing its facial expressions to let him/herknow its awareness of his/her gaze. This completes eye contact. We then present a robot with a wide field of view using three cameras. If a person wants the robot tocome to him/her, he can do so just by making eye contact with the robot.
