We constructed a multimodal acoustic environment corpus for interaction design. The intelligent environment consists of a living room interacting with different users and adapting it to their preferences. We developed a speech interaction system to control electrical appliances in the living room, and to record and accumulate real-life interaction data to the corpus. The results of interaction analysis indicated that the constructed corpus was effective in investigating the actual conditions of real-life interaction using speech interfaces.

Index Terms. multimodal acoustic environment corpus, speech interaction design, situation understanding, user environment adaptation
