Summary

The aim of this project is the study and development of methodologies and tools necessary to implement emotional robotics agents capable of dealing with unstructured and dynamic environments. Therefore, the goal is not the optimization of some particular ability, but instead the research focus is put on general competence to learn, adapt itself and survive. In order to practically test these ideas, a small autonomous robot will be adapted and used based on technology already developed and tested.
