Human robots must have actions with fertile emotions, in order to cooperate with human being. To clarify “what is the emotional factor of actions”, the authors analyze the actions of a Bunraku puppet. The observed action time series are modeled by a stochastic time evolutionequations (KM2O-Langevin equations) with exogenoussources which represent the sources of functional factors, emotional factors and stochastic fluctuation factors. The estimation method for KM2O-Langevin equations with exogenous sources is established. This method is verified by a numerical simulation.
