In fresh years, self sufficient robots, together with Xavier, Martha [1], Rhino [2,3], Minerva,and distant Agent, have proven remarkable functionality in long term demonstrations. In NASA’s Deep house software, for instance, an - tonomous spacecraft controller, referred to as the distant Agent [5], has autonomously played a scienti?c scan in area. At Carnegie Mellon college, Xavier [6], one other self sustaining cellular robotic, navigated via an o?ce - vironment for greater than a yr, permitting humans to factor navigation instructions and video display their execution through the net. In 1998, Minerva [7] acted for thirteen days as a museum tourguide within the Smithsonian Museum, and led a number of thousand humans via an exhibition. those self sufficient robots have in universal that they depend on plan-based c- trol on the way to in achieving larger problem-solving competence. within the plan-based technique, robots generate regulate activities through holding and executing a plan that's e?ective and has a excessive anticipated software with recognize to the robots’ c- hire targets and ideology. Plans are robotic keep watch over courses robotic can't basically execute but additionally cause approximately and control [4]. hence, a plan-based c- troller is ready to deal with and adapt the robot’s meant plan of action — the plan — whereas executing it and will thereby larger in attaining complicated and altering tasks.

Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment: 4th International ICST Conference, INTETAIN 2011, Genova, Italy, May 25-27, 2011, Revised Selected Papers

This ebook constitutes the complaints of the 4th overseas convention on clever applied sciences for Interactive leisure (INTETAIN 11). The 20 complete papers, three posters, 10 demos and four workshops awarded have been rigorously chosen from a variety of submissions. The convention goals improving the knowledge of modern and expected advances in interactive applied sciences, and their purposes to leisure, schooling, tradition, and the humanities.

Sample text

The input fluents on the left side contain the position estimates for the robot itself, its teammates, the ball, and the opponent players. These fluents are continually updated and their values are propagated through a digital circuit to compute abstract properties of the respective game situation the ball and the opponent players. The fluent networks compute more abstract features of game situations such as the left or the right side of the field being open, whether there are passing opportunities, whether the team has ball possession, and so on.

In this paper we propose a coordination mechanism in which each robot first computes a global task assignment for the team that minimizes the cost of achieving all tasks, and then executes the task assigned to itself. In this coordination mechanism a robot can infer the intentions of its team mates given their belief states. Lack of information caused by communication failures causes an increase of uncertainty with respect to the belief states of team mates. The cost of task achievement is estimated by a sophisticated temporal projection module that exploits learned dynamical models of the robots.

These decisions include how to play the pass, how to synchronize the robots’ actions, when to play the pass, how to dribble to the goal, and when to shoot. The explicit representation of these control decisions enables experience based learning mechanisms to make the play more effective by tuning it. The plans for the different plays are applied by the top-level plan for the offense of the Agilo robots, which looks as follows: def interp proc Offense () with policy whenever new-assessment-period? ∧ ¬ executing-play?
