Robots must understand human intention flexibly before the two can live together, for example. Interaction Emotion Communication (IEC), bidirectional communication based on emotional behavior between human beings and robots, raises the personal affinity a robot has for human beings. IEC consists of three processes – (1) recognizing human emotion, (2) generating robot emotion, and (3) expressing robot emotion. We focus here on generating robot emotion. Emotional behavior patterns desirable in a robot vary with the person, so we also conducted individual preference analysis of emotional behavior.
