In this paper we present a generic computational model to include emotion and personality in the behaviour of a robot. This model is based on a comparison of recent computational models of emotions and classical hybrid architecture for robot computation; it is also merged with psychological works on emotion and personality.
Existing computational models of emotions, although based on different psychological theories, share common properties and may be seen as the different facets of a common emotional process. We thus present our model GRACE - aiming at unifying existing models into a single architecture while preserving the peculiarities of each of them. We also demonstrate… (More)
— In HRI, many researches emphasize the impact of the human user's personality (expressed mainly through the Extroversion dimension) over the perception of the robot's behavior. In our experiment, where participants interacted/used a novel driving assistance system, we focused on analyzing the role of each BigFive Personality dimension in people's task… (More)
Driver's cognitive load has always been associated with the driver's heart rate activity and his/her skin con-ductance activity. However, what aspects of cognitive load that these signals relate to have never been clearly studied. This paper presents our preliminary results about the relationship between the different physiological signals (heart rate and… (More)
