Abstract

The consumer electronics of the future will be aware of the emotion of their users in order to provide more natural, engaging, entertaining and productive experiences. The paper reports on the development and evaluation of an emotionally responsive robotic dog. The dog is able to recognise emotion in its user through acoustic emotion recognition, and respond through a series of actions. In particular this paper details the technology implementation of the acoustic emotion recognition and the integration into the robotic dog. Copyright © 2008 ISCA.
