Fran and #xE7;ois Michaud, Etienne Robichaud, and Jonathan Audet

To operate over a long period of time in the real world, autonomous mobile robots must have the capability of recharging themselves whenever necessary. In addition to be able to find and dock into a charging station, robots must be able to decide when and for how long to recharge. This decision is influenced by the energetic capacity of their batteries and the contingencies of the environment. To deal with this temporality issue and using research evidences from the field of psychology, this study investigates the use of motives and artificial emotions to regulate the recharging need of autonomous robots.
