This essay proposes a line of investigation related to decisional processes in robots, specifically throughthe concept of imagination.

In this context, with prior revision of the concept of imagination in humanbeings and taking keys both from Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architecture and Cybernetic, this article introducesthe concept of Imagination Potential as a measure of decisional capacity that can be expanded in the robots.
