This paper brie y describes a robot architecture that has been under development for the last eight years This architecture uses several levels of abstraction and description languages that are compat ible between levels The makeup of the architecture helps to coordinate planful activities with real time behaviors for dealing with dynamic en vironments In(More)
In order to navigate autonomously, most robot systems are provided with some sort of global terrain map. To make storage practical, these maps usually have a high-level symbolic representation of the terrain. The robot’s symbolic map is then used to plan a local path.
