Note: SRI Project 1187. The research reported herein was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research under Contract N00014-71-C-0294 and M-348-028. Reprinted from Technical Report dated December 1971 to Office of Naval Research, Contract N00014-71-C-0294 (AD 734 140).
Existing robot projects in the field of artificial intelligence have concentrated on tasks wherein the robot must excite an action in order to change the current state of its environment. In this report we consider other families of task, such as those involving the inhibition of an action or the maintenance of the current state of its environment. In particular, we propose a representation for knowledge that a robot would need if it is to solve problems from such task domains.
