Abstract: As robots enter everyday life and start to interact with ordinary people, designing a robot, that is able to perform perception, becomes increasingly important. Furthermore, to help a human being in such situations, robots need to receive human orders and optimize their behavior. Autonomous robot should make a proper mutual communication between perception and emotion for creating a desired interaction and sensation with humans. This paper presents an approach to the design of an architecture for human-robot interaction based on the growing understanding of the neuronal mechanisms and psychological processes underlying social perception, cognition and action. Interaction modalities include analysis of speech and of non-verbal human activities like gestures and general body postures. The proposed architecture takes into account perception uncertainties, motivation in human behavior and typical human emotions. Eventually, models will be evaluated on a physical, autonomous robot in a typical domestic environment, with some uncertainty.
