Paper Abstract

This paper describes a system of guidance for an intelligent mobile autonomous system (autonomous robot) based upon an algorithm of "pilot decision making" which incorporates different strategies of operation. Depending on the set of circumstances including the level of "informedness", initial data, concrete environment, and so on, the "personality" of PILOT is being selected between two alternatives: 1) a diligent strategist which tends to explore all available trajectories off-line and be prepared to follow one of them precisely, and 2) a hasty decision maker inclined to make a choice of solution in a rather reckless manner base upon short term alternatives not regarding long term consequences. Simulation shows that these two personalities support each other in a beneficial way.
