Intelligent-Machine Research at CESAR

Charles R. Weisbin


The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Center for Engineering Systems Advanced Research (CESAR) is a national center for multidisciplinary long-range research and development (R&D) in machine intelligence and advanced control theory. Intelligent machines (including sensor-based robots) can be viewed as artificially created operational systems capable of autonomous decision making and action. One goal of the research is autonomous remote operations in hazardous environments. This review describes highlights of CESAR research through 1986 and alludes to future plans.
