With the increasing demand for robots to assist humans in shared workspaces and environments designed for humans, research on human-robot interaction (HRI) gains more and more importance. Robots in shared environments must be safe and act in a way understandable by humans, through the way they interact and move. As visual cues such as facial expressions are important in human-human communication, research on emotion recognition, expression, and emotionally enriched communication is of great importance to HRI and has also gained increasing attention during the last two decades [1, 3, 4, 6, 8]. Most of the existing work focuses on the recognition of human emotions or mimicking their expression [1, 6] and emotional action selection [3, 5]. Less work is done on the role of emotions in influencing human behaviour in HRI [4].
