Description:
Over the last few years a number of cognitive robotic languages have been developed to provide a flexible method of high-level control for robotic and software agents. These languages are based on a formal theory of action and provide a basis for deliberative control. The main languages resulting from this research include Golog, Flux and CML.

One aspect that is missing from these languages is a formal theory of communication that would allow individual high-level controllers to co-ordinate with each other. In this project, we will extend the Golog family of cognitive robotics language with facilities for inter-agent communication using the JADE agent development environment. This will involve examining co-ordination and teamwork frameworks to determine which language primitives are essential. Furthermore, the project will be implemented in the iCinema AVIE projection environment - a 10m diameter by 3.5m high cylindrical stereo projection system.
