Abstract

In this paper, we propose a framework of life duration and inheritance for pet robots to make them have original characteristics in their limited lives. The purpose of our research is to develop a pet robot that enables the user to treat the robots as though they had real lives from the viewpoint of importance of life and pleasure of birth through the breeding of robots. The characteristics of bodily motions are inheritable by the next generation. The robots also change their behavior corresponding to elapsed time from birth.
