The authors have been developing anthropomorphic head-eye robots, in order to elucidate the human vision system from an engineering point of view, and to develop a new head mechanism and function for a humanoid robot having the ability to communicate naturally with a human. We developed an anthropomorphic head-eye robot “WE-3R III” (Waseda Eye No.3 Refined III) having auditory sensation, cutaneous sensation and a facial expression mechanism with eyes, eyelids, eyebrows, lips, a jaw and a neck. It is said that the human cutaneous sensations include contact, pressure, cold, warmth and pain, so a tactile sensor and a temperature sensor were mounted on the robot. For the tactile sensor, we adopted a force sensing resistor. We think that the difference in touching methods such as `push', `stroke' and `hit' have an effect on emotion, therefore we developed the method for recognizing those differences, and installed it in the robot. By improving and rebuilding the artificial psychological model of WE-3RII using a new concept-equations of emotion-in a 3D mental space, we realized expression of the mental state affected by various stimuli with WE-3R III
