Appropriate design of the interaction between humans and robots will be a crucial factor for the acceptance of new robotic products. Apromising approach is to equip robots with life-like and social characteristics. A coherent personality expressed through behavior can help users to understand and predict the behavior of a robotic appliance. In this paper, we describe existing design approaches and arguethat an integrated design process is needed.
