In this study, we show the mobile photographing robot which moves around entertainment facilities, and automatically takes a picture of people who desire a commemorative picture. Our robot approaches target human by detecting his/her face from the image captured from monocular camera attached on the robot. In our method, the robot behaviors are controlled by using the face detection results. In order to validate the usefulness of the proposed method, the performance of the mobile photographing robot is evaluated. From the experimental results, it was shown that the robot could approach a human and take a picture automatically without operator's intervention from human approaching to photographing.
