   Project Description

The software controlling the robot was completely redesigned to incorporate more general and powerful methods both for solving robot problems in the abstract and also for executing the solutions in the real world. This second phase of our activity reached a plateau during the past year, by which time we had completed the design and implementation of the entire system and had carried out a series of experiments to explore its strengths and weaknesses.

As this work progressed we developed preliminary ideas for methods that would dramatically increase the capabilities of the robot in several directions. It was clear that these methods could not be included in the existing system in any convenient way. Accordingly, we elected to devote most of our resources to the task of designing a new robot system that would encompass our new ideas for robot problem solving, perception, and real-world execution monitoring. Thus, our work during the past year has been divided between completing some tasks associated with the existing robot software and beginning design studies for a new system.
