Nonparametric regression methods have been widely studied in functional regression analysis in the context of functional covariates and univariate response, but it is not the case for functional covariates with multivariate response. In this paper, we present two new solutions for the latter problem: the first is to directly extend the nonparametric method for univariate response to multivariate response, and in the second, the correlation among different responses is incorporated into the model. The asymptotic properties of the estimators are studied, and the effectiveness of the proposed methods is demonstrated through several simulation studies and a real data example.
