The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) will field a team of undergraduates for two events in the 1997 AAAI Mobile Robot Competition: Life on Mars and HOTS D'oeuvres. The objectives of the team are (1) to gain experience with implementing behaviors under a hybrid deliberative/reactive style of architecture and (2) to transfer research being conducted at CSM in intelligent sensor fusion to new applications. The students are preparing the entries as part of the class projects for the MACS415: Introduction to AI Robotics and Computer Vision and MACS370: Field Session courses. The team is using two different robots, both running subsets of the Sensor Fusion Effects (SFX) architecture implemented in C++.
