Computer games have gained attention as a testbed for research in AI and related disciplines early already. A recent addition to the set of games that is being used in this regard is Angry Birds. It offers several interesting aspects in terms of research such as reasoning about physical effects and…

Mobile robots that are deployed, for instance, for domestic tasks, need to fulfill them even if they do not have complete information about the domain beforehand. Consider, for example, the task of fetching an object from a specific room. Consider further that the robot has a map of the environment…

The action language GOLOG has been used, among other things, for the specification of the behaviour of mobile robots. Since the task of such autonomous systems is typically open-ended, their GOLOG programs are usually non-terminating. To ensure that the program will let the robot exhibit the…

Biological algorithms of sound localization may be useful in studying acoustic orientation of robots. One of us (Lakemeyer) collaborated in the software design of a mobile robot that can give guided tours through exhibitions, among other things. We now want to equip this robot with a sound…

Strategic Networks (e.g. in enterprises or research-groups) are the most ambitious models for cooperative perception and problemsolving at the moment. With these one tries to combine the advantages of the flexibility of market mechansims with the stability of hierarchical organizations. The Aachen…

The aim of this project is the tight integration of the latest developments in the areas of planning languages and action logics in order to arrive at systems that are both very epressive and efficient. For comparing action languages like Golog and Flux with planning formalisms like PDDL –…
