Fast Synthetic Vision, Memory, and Learning Models for Virtual Humans

  title={Fast Synthetic Vision, Memory, and Learning Models for Virtual Humans},
  author={James J. Kuffner and Jean-Claude Latombe},
This paper presents a simple and efficient method of modeling synthetic vision, memory, and learning for autonomous animated characters in real-time virtual environ ments. The model is efficient in terms of both storage requirements and update times, and can be flexibly combined with a variety of higher-level reasoning modules or complex memory rules. The design is inspired by research in motion planning, control, and sensing for autonomous mobile robots. We apply this framework to the problem… CONTINUE READING
