Moving Walls

  • Marcel Schoppers NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Abstract

When the robot Flakey expected a doorway where none existed and perceived a wall as a movable obstacle, I soon saw that my program worked well only where it employed sensory feedback and that PRS’s procedures were another form of feed-forward control, with built-in (though branching) expectations over-ruling sensing. This realization led to the conception of universal plans.
