AbstractFacing the challenge of accurately expressing emotions with robots and characters with limited expressive capabilities, we developed an abstraction model for generating emotional expressions based on the atomic features that enable human beings to recognize emotions in other humans' faces. The model is also augmented by animation theory from movies and puppetry. A small evaluation of the expressions showed that some expressions were well recognized, in particular Anger and Sadness.
