The morphofunctional approach to emotion modelling in robotics

Carlos Herrera Pérez, Guadalupe Sánchez Escribano, Ricardo Sanz
2012 Adaptive Behavior  
We investigate the control requirements for such systems, and present a possible bio-inspired architecture, based on the division of control between neural and endocrine systems in humans and animals.  ...  In this conceptual paper, we discuss two areas of research in robotics, robotic models of emotion and morphofunctional machines, and we explore the scope for potential cross-fertilization between them.  ...  As they are caused by configurations of morphology, these can be considered such embodied 're-presentations'.  ...
