Abstract

Affordances are an important concept in cognition, which can be applied to robots in order to perform a successful human-robot interaction (HRI). In this paper we explore and discuss the idea of emotional affordances and propose a viable model for implementation into HRI. We consider “2-ways” affordances: perceived object triggering an emotion, and perceived human emotion expression triggering an action. In order to make the implementation generic, the proposed model includes a library that can be customised depending on the specific robot and application’s scenario. We present the AAA (Affordance-Appraisal-Arousal) model, which incorporates Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions, and show some examples of simulation and possible scenarios.
