In order to develop a sociable robot that can operate in the social environment of humans, we need to develop a robot system that can recognize the emotions of the people it interacts with and can respond to them accordingly. In this thesis, I present a facial expression system that recognizes the facial features of human subjects in an unsupervised manner and interprets the facial expressions of the individuals. The facial expression system is integrated with an existing emotional model for the expressive humanoid robot, Mertz.
