The ability of human symbiosis robots to communicate is indispensable for their coexistence with humans, so studies on the interaction between humans and robots are important. In this paper, we propose amodel robot self-sufficiency system that empathizes with human emotions, a model in which we apply the urge system to an autonomous system of emotions. We carry out simulation experiments on this model and verify the psychological interaction between the software robot and its users.
