— The goal of the work presented here is to develop a robotic software system which enables robotic learning by experimentation within a distributed and heterogeneous setting. To meet this challenge, the authors specified, defined, developed , implemented and tested a component-based architecture called XPERSIF. The architecture comprises loosely-coupled,(More)
Humans are able to come up with plans to achieve their goals, and to adapt these plans to changes in their environment , finding fixes, alternatives and taking advantages of opportunities without much deliberation. For example, they may use a tea kettle to water the plants, or a mug instead of a glass. Despite decades of research, artificial agents are not(More)
Adapting plans to changes in the environment by finding alternatives and taking advantage of opportunities is a common human behavior. The need for such behavior is often rooted in the uncertainty produced by our incomplete knowledge of the environment. While several existing planning approaches deal with such issues, artificial agents still lack the(More)
RoCKIn is a EU-funded project aiming to foster scientific progress and innovation in cognitive systems and robotics through the design and implementation of competitions. An additional objective of RoCKIn is to increase public awareness of the current state-of-the-art in robotics and the innovation potential of robotics applications. From these objectives(More)
Embodied artificial agents operating in dynamic, real-world environments need architectures that support the special requirements that exist for them. Archi-tectures are not always designed from scratch and the system then implemented all at once, but rather, a step-wise integration of components is often made to increase func-tionality. Our work aims to(More)
