   Project Description

This project is a follow-on to the original Shakey project.

A 14-month project of research in the application of techniques of artificial intelligence to the control of a mobile automaton in a realistic environment is described. The main emphasis is on experimentation with a previously-developed system of hardware and software and on research in several related areas of artificial intelligence where new efforts have been necessary to increase the capabilities of the automaton. Major areas discussed include the use of formal theorem-proving techniques of first-order logic in solving problems for the automaton; symbolic information structures for modeling the automaton environment; results in visual scene analysis, including a decision-tree approach and the use of regional as well as local analysis; and an outline for the design of a problem-solving system based on higher-order logic.

Shakey
Shakey was one of the first autonomous mobile robots, built at the AI Center during 1966-1972. This film, SHAKEY: Experimentation in Robot Learning and Planning, was produced by Peter Hart and Nils Nilsson around 1969.
