Make me different! Motivational‑based architecture for uniqueness behavior in robotics competitions

The use of common frameworks and open source libraries for programming robots are causing the perception that robots share the same repetitive behaviors. This is happening not only in a singular robot, sometimes even among different robots. It can be easily observed at robotic competitions, where several robots face the same tasks. Perceived behavior plays a significant role in the acceptation of robots by people. The interpretation of these behaviors by spectators is a cornerstone in order to establish some kind of human-robot attachment. This paper presents a motivational based architecture to generate more natural behaviors in autonomous robot behaviors. The outcome comes in two ways, quantitatively, the robot acts differently each loop of execution attending the motivation in that moment and qualitatively, spectators in robotics competitions perceive a new level of robot’s abilities.
