Towards Reliable Autonomous Agents

  title={Towards Reliable Autonomous Agents},
  author={Reid and Simmons},
We are interested in producing reliable autonomous robots that can operate for extended periods of time in uncertain, dynamic environments. We have been developing methodologies and software tools to facilitate this, including the Task Control Architecture and probabilistic methods for representing and reasoning about uncertainty. The aim is to incrementally produce reliable behavior by adding (perhaps automatically) execution monitors and exception handlers that can detect when expectations… CONTINUE READING
