emotion design virtual human emotion model cognitive science
Emotion experience can effectively enhance the interest of users for virtual reality; emotion design for a virtual human is becoming a core technology in building a virtual environment, although the current emotion model of virtual humans is still in a preliminary stage. The previous research on emotion models was reviewed in this paper, and some unsettled problems of the emotion model were discussed. Based on the relative research on emotion models and the achievements of cognitive science, a new idea of building an emotion model was presented for the purpose of improving the efficiency of emotion design for a virtual human. A virtual human’s emotion state can be controlled by an emotion model, which has perception, motivation, emotion, and personality while showing appropriate autonomous emotions in a virtual environment. Emotion design software can integrate the softcomputing theory and humancomputer interaction technology, providing an efficient tool for the establishment of humanoriented graphics interfaces. 
