   Project Description

It is the objective of this program to develop concepts and techniques in artificial intelligence enabling an automaton to function independently in realistic environments. These concepts shall be demonstrated by means of a breadboard, mobile vehicle containing visual, tactile, and acoustic sensors, signal processing and pattern-recognition equipment, and computer programming. Primary goals shall be the solution of incompletely specified problems (requiring creation of intermediate strategies and goals) and improvement of performance with training experience.

SRI Project 5953

This project had a follow-on Shakey project.

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.
