Abstract

In order for a robot to be part of ubiquitous computing to provide a solution or service in different and distributed environment, it needs to precisely recognize the environment it is placed into and the activity of the robot is controled by the input data though this recognition. In this paper, we present a system which allows the robot to effectively accomplish its mission by actuators citing the Mental State built through integrating the context collected and data output by various component agents of the robot. The system uses the blackboard system, serving as the central data structure in intellectual activity of a robot. Also, the feasibility of this system is demonstrated through constructing a cricket-based self-locating automatic-driving robot.
