For artificial intelligence research to progress beyond the highly specialized task-dependent implementations achievable today, researchers may need to incorporate aspects of biological behavior that have not traditionally been associated with intelligence. Affective processes such as emotions may be crucial to the generalized intelligence possessed by(More)
Autonomous robots are presently unable to match the adaptive capabilities of even the simplest of animals. Affective processes such as emotions are highly effective facilitators of adaptive behavior in humans and animals. Thus, it can be argued that emotions can bestow robots with similar adaptive advantages. In particular, artificial emotions can improve a(More)
A hierarchical robot navigation system has been developed and implemented on a range of real and simulated mobile robots for two independent research applications. One application is a study on emotion-modulated navigation. The other is an investigation of heterogeneous multi-robot navigation. The navigation framework shared by the various implementations(More)
