Paper Abstract

Controlling robots in dynamic environments poses several unique problems not found in other environments and disciplines. In this paper, we explore some of these problems and detail some of the computational characteristics of processes that are needed to control a robot in such an environment. Having defined these computational characteristics, we then discuss and analyze the system support that would be required in order to execute these processes. Finally we discuss the results obtained using a simulated environment.
