The objective of this work is to develop the technology for human-machine communication through the research of the emergence of mind in mechanical systems. In this paper, the hypothesis about the emergence of mind are proposed. First, the system chart expressing the human brain information processing, and the development of an autonomous mobile robot 'WAMOEBA-IR' (Waseda Artificial Mind On Emotion BAse) are described. The conception of the WAMOEBA-IR design is that robots should have Self-Preservation Evaluation Function. Further more, the method to evaluate the whole system are described from the viewpoint of the animal psychology. As a result of the experiments, WAMOEBA-IR showed specific emotional reactions with color appearances to some situations. WAMOEBA-IR has the sense of values about colors and sounds based on Self-Preservation as the first step of the emergence of mind.
