A Shakey Primer

by Wilber, B. M.

Technical Report
Institution: Stanford Research Institute
Address: 333 Ravenswood Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025
November 1972.

Abstract

This is an introductory primer for new users of Shakey. We will content ourselves with simple outlines of functional (if inelegant) procedures by which a person can gain access to various capabilities of the robot. This primer will concentrate on the PDP- lO action software–as opposed to both STRIPS (and friends) on one side , and the PDP-15 and hardware on the other side. This action software falls naturally into three levels along an axis of sophistication (or undue complexity, depending on your intended use of the robot). The names usually used for the different levels are: ROBDEM for the simplest, the low-level actions (LLA’s), and the intermediate-level actions (ILA’s). Each of these three levels will be explained in a separate section of this primer; in all cases, the explanations will, for the sake of brevity, include only the detail, ramifications, or moti vation needed by a beginner for his initial encounters. With experience, you will begin to understand the wide range of permissible variation, but you are urged to take the instructions more literally at first.
