Knowledge considerations in robotics and distribution of robotic tasks Conference Paper uri icon


  • We develop a formal tool for representing and analyzing informational aspects of robotic tasks, based on the formal concept ofknowledge.'Speci cally, we adopt the notion of knowledge-based protocols from distributed systems, and de ne the notions of knowledge complexity of a robotic task and knowledge capability of a robot. The resulting formalism naturally captures previous work in the areas of robot information management, but is suciently rigorous and natural to allow many extensions. In this paper we show one novel application {the automated distribution of robotic tasks.
