About the Project

Standardization of software module interfaces for control, sensing, world modelling, logic inference and decision making could substantially enhance efficiency of robot programming. Automated reconfiguration of capabilities given a set of hardware/software modules is the objective of this project. Such automated reconfigurability could not only make robots more adaptable but it could make the creation of a new robot a simpler task as little programming would be needed for a new set of hardware to form a new robot. Old hardware could be reused in innovative ways and less wasted.

The project is to use of an advanced intelligent agent programming system using natural language programming (sEnglish) to shape standard features and interoperability of modules and capabilities.
