Corpus-Based Robotics : A Route Instruction Example

  title={Corpus-Based Robotics : A Route Instruction Example},
  author={Guido Bugmann and Ewan Klein and Stanislao Lauria and Theocharis Kyriacou},
In corpus-based robotics, the primitive functions built into a robot are determined by the functional content of human utterances spoken to the robot. In the example of route instructions treated in this paper, the 15 primitives found include functions such as turn(), cross(), landmark_is_located(), etc. These are natural primitives of human behaviour but complex robot functions, some of which are not normally thought of by roboticists. Primitives must cope robustly with a variety of… CONTINUE READING
