Representing Sensing Actions : The Middle Ground Revisited ( Extended Abstract )

  title={Representing Sensing Actions : The Middle Ground Revisited ( Extended Abstract )},
  author={Keith Golden and Daniel S. Weld},
To build e ective planning systems, it is crucial to nd the right level of representation: too impoverished, and important actions or goals are impossible to express; too expressive, and planning becomes intractable. Under the classical framework, Pednault [17] provided a happy compromise between the impoverished strips representation, and the expensive situation calculus. Among languages handling sensing actions and information goals, there is a similar spectrum of expressiveness. uwl, which… CONTINUE READING
