Abstract

In recent years the area of Intelligent Virtual Environments has become an interesting branch of computer graphics. We have developed an animation system that simulates emotional behavior for virtual humans in virtual environments. In particular, our work encompasses an emotional behavior model for virtual pedestrians on the basis of psychological findings. We introduce the concept of emotion set and emotion expression sets, define a function between these two sets, pay attention to the cause of emotion, and try to give a formalization for emotions.
