We present an architecture for complex affective robots for human-robot interaction. After describing our rationale for using affect as a means of "architectural integration", we give a quick conceptual example of how affect can play an organizational role in a complex agent and then describe our proposed affective architecture, its functionality and implementation, and results from experimental evaluations on an autonomous robot.
