Motivation and Emotion in Behavior-Based Robots

(p.245) 9 Moving Up the Food Chain
Who Needs Emotions?


Oxford University Press

This chapter investigates the relationship between motivations and emotions as evidenced by a broad range of animal models, including humans. It explains that emotions constitute a subset of motivations that provide support for an agent's survival in a complex world and that both emotions and motivations affect behavioural performance. It reviews actual robotic examples that have provided useful environments where questions about emotions and motivations can be addressed and describes an ongoing modelling effort to address the issue of time-varying affect-related phenomena such as personality traits, attitudes, moods, and emotions.

Keywords:   motivation, emotion, personality traits, attitudes, moods
