Along with the advanced technology and network development, as well as the changes in the intelligence-based society, the robot development is in active progress. Especially, the research on the personal service robot, which can naturally interact with human in a daily life, are becoming more important. However, the personal service robot studies are generally focused on the development of basic technology or functions, the robot interface design studies are at am insufficient level. Thus, this research concentrated on providing guidelines for the personal service robot interface design. To do so, the personal service robot interface factors have been organized and a user survey and an expert survey were conducted. As a result, a total number of 16 interface factors have been gathered to include shape, structure, size, color, face appearance, tactile, mechanical parts, movements, gesture, voice, sound effect, light, facial emotion, GUI, VUI, and TUI. Also, their details have been organized to suggest the guidelines for the personal service robot interface design by factor. This research can be used to evaluate the personal service robot interface or to design the personal service robot; and after all, it would help seek the development direction of the personal service robot.
