This chapter introduces a new research area called affective computing, focusing on the use of robotics in investigating human emotions. This chapter discusses autonomous robots and explains how they can be used as meaningful tools and models for the study of emotions. Autonomous robots are particularly suited to study two fundamental aspects of emotions: (1) adaptation to environment and behavioural control; and (2) social interaction and communication.

Keywords:   affective computing, robotics, emotions, autonomous robots, behavioural control, social interaction, communication
