Paper Abstract

Through the integration of advanced technologies, roving robots are able to achieve high levels of robotic intelligence. Use of conventional robot programming systems to control these rovers is inappropriate due to their dynamic and not previously specified environments. As a solution to this, an expert system design is proposed that provides a viable method for the program and control of a rover. The expert system makes use of a rule based knowledge system to control the operations of a rover. A blackboard structure is utilized to facilitate communication among the various expert system components. Inference and performance logs are incorporated into the design to provide a means of verifying the expert system's performance. A prototype system has been implemented on the Ml expert system development package from Teknowledge Inc.
