Abstract

See full text

A user information input structure that inputs user information, a memory structure that stores user's bearing information as robot's bearing pattern, and a regenerating structure that regenerates the pattern based on the information input to the user information input structure. A detection structure for detecting user information and environment information, a feelings generation structure for generating artificial feelings for a robot based on the detecting user and environment information, and a behavior determination structure for the behavior determination structure controls the actuator so that a resistance acted on the robot is changed.
