A Hybrid, Teleo-Reactive Architecture for Robot Control

Simon Coffey, Keith Clark

Abstract

In this paper we describe the structure of a proposed hybrid architecture for robot control. A BDI-style planning layer manipulates a plan library in which plans are comprised of hierarchical, suspendable and recoverable teleo-reactive programs. We also present preliminary simulation and implementation work.
