This paper presents a novel exploration on how to enable a robot to express its intention so that the humans and robot can form a synergic relationship. A systematic design approach is proposed to obtain a set of possible intentions for a given robot from three levels of intentions. A visual intention expression system approach is developed to visualize the intentions and implemented on a mobile robot and a manipulator to demonstrate the intention expression concept.
