This paper describes an approach to synthesise non-verbal behaviours for a humanoid robot Pepper using spoken text. Our approach takes into account the sentiment of the spoken text and maps the appropriate gesture and sound relevant to that text in a parameterised manner. This work forms a basis for our planned user study where we will evaluate this approach.
