Abstract

An approach based upon the use of multiple primitive reflexive behaviors is presented in which the control of behavior is separated from the computational devices which affect behavior. Each primitive reflexive behavior is completely uncoupled and is based upon a stimulus/response paradigm which does not incorporate heuristics, path planning, or memory. We present experimental results for a simulated mobile robot operating in an unknown environment. The approach has also been verified using a real robot with onboard parallel processing, operating in an unknown and limited dynamic environment.
