A Constructivist Model of Robot Perception and Performance

  title={A Constructivist Model of Robot Perception and Performance},
  author={Joseph A. Lewis and George F. Luger},
We present a new architecture for robot control rooted in notions from Brooks' subsumption architecture and extended to include an internal representation which matures as it experiences the world. Our architecture is based on the Copycat program of Mitchell and Hofstadter, a model of fluid representation whose details we discuss. We show how our architecture develops a representation of its environment through a continuing interaction with it. The architecture is founded on a dynamical systems… CONTINUE READING
