MICE and the Science of Vacuuming

David J. Musliner and David Kortenkamp

Artificial intelligence and robotics are fields notorious for developing many different systems that are never compared with each other in a quantitative way. This paper suggests that the task of vacuum-cleaning could be used as a benchmark for comparing different robot systems. Such a comparison should take place within a simulation environment, which is outlined in the paper. This paper also suggests a possible standard robot and some benchmark environments, as well as a set of quantitative evaluation metrics that could be used to compare robot systems.
