Veres, Sandor M. and Lincoln, Nick K. (2009) Rational physical agent reasoning beyond logic , Southampton, UK University of Southampton (SEASS Report, 1/2009).

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The paper addresses the problem of defining a theoretical physical agent framework that satisfies practical requirements of programmability by non-programmer engineers and at the same time permitting fast realtime operation of agents on digital computer networks. The objective of the new framework is to enable the satisfaction of performance requirements on autonomous vehicles and robots in space exploration, deep underwater exploration, defense reconnaissance, automated manufacturing and household automation.
