Electronic equipment with an autonomous function

The invention is directed to electronic equipment, such as a pet robot, with an autonomous emotion-based function. The electronic equipment executes environment detection processing, emotion-production processing for producing an emotion, and movement determination processing for determining a movement based on the emotion. The movement determination processing is arranged such that actions representing the emotion by the movement of given parts of the pet robot are performed prior to main actions based on the emotion. Therefore, a user can understand the emotion of the pet robot by intuition and thereby predict the subsequent movement naturally and effectively, providing the user feeling that the movement of the pet robot is reasonable.
