PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To impart variety to the action pattern of an autonomous information home electrical appliance by creating a new action pattern following the characteristics of the communicating party.SOLUTION: A database server 10 retrieves information associated with equipment from a database 20, and provides it. The database 20 is connected to the database server 10, and manages and stores the information associated with the equipment. Autonomous equipment 30 (robot, information home electrical appliance) receives information from the database server 10 or autonomous equipment 40 (robot, information home electrical appliance), and performs an operation corresponding to the autonomous equipment 40 based on an autonomous program. The autonomous equipment 40 receives the information from the database server 10 or the autonomous equipment 30, and performs an operation corresponding to the autonomous equipment 30 based on an autonomous program. A network 50 transmits the information or request information as an IPv6 packet. A short-range communicating means 60 confirms the existence of equipment existing in the neighborhood.
