"Research in Cognitive Robotics is concerned with the theory and the implementation of robots that reason, act and perceive in changing, incompletely known, unpredictable environments. Such robots must have higher level cognitive functions that involve reasoning, for example, about goals, actions, when to perceive and what to look for, the cognitive states of other agents, time, collaborative task execution, etc. In short, Cognitive Robotics is concerned with integrating reasoning, perception and action within a uniform theoretical and implementation framework." [From the description of the AAAI 1998 Fall Symposium on Cognitive Robotics]Participants will be able to use any of several cognitive robot simulation environments:
We also expect a hardware magellan robot to arrive in the department near the beginning of the Fall semester, and to be available to the participants of this seminar. It is described in the Magellan manual. In addition to the base robot, we will have a pan-tilt-zoom color camera and a wireless network card.
