Postprint version. Presented at Workshop on Non-Verbal and Verbal Communicative Acts to Achieve Contextual Embodied Agents, Autonomous Agents 2001, 6 pages.


We are seeking to outline a framework to create embodied agents with consistency both in terms of human actions and communications in general and individual humans in particular. Our goal is to drive this consistent behavior from internal or cognitive models of the agents. First, we describe channels of non-verbal communication and related research in embodied agents. We then describe cognitive processes that can be used to coordinate these channels of communication and create consistent behavior.
