Paper Abstract

Sensory processing for real-time, complex, and intelligent control systems is costly, so it is important to perform only the sensory processing required by the task. In this paper, we describe a straightforward metric for precisely defining sensory processing requirements. We then apply that metric to a complex, real-world control problem, autonomous on-road driving. To determine these requirements the system designer must precisely and completely define 1) the system behaviors, 2) the world model situations that the system behaviors require, 3) the world model entities needed to generate all those situations, and 4) the resolutions, accuracy tolerances, detection timing, and detection distances required of all world model entities.
