is the 12th IEEE International Conference on Methods
and Models in Automation and Robotics organized
in Miedzyzdroje, Poland, from August 28th to August 31st,
I've partecipated to MMAR
2006 presenting the paper entitled "A Modular,
Hierarchical, Reconfigurable Controller for Autonomous Robots".
I've written this paper with Alessandro
Saffiotti, head of the Mobile Robotics laboratory at
the Center for Applied
Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) of Örebro University,
In this paper, we present a robotic controller
that satisfies three important desiderata for autonomous
robots: modularity, hierarchical structure, reconfigurability.
To illustrate the functioning of our controller, we show
experiments run on both a simulator and a real robot.
