In this work, we present an attentional system for a robotic agent capable of adapting its emergent behavior to the surrounding environment and to its internal state. In this framework, the agent is endowed with simple attentional mechanisms regulating the frequencies of sensory readings and behavior activations. The process of changing the frequency of sensory readings is interpreted as an increase or decrease of attention towards relevant behaviors and particular aspects of the external environment. In this paper, we present our framework discussing several case studies considering incrementally complex behaviors and tasks.
