Current autonomous robots that are highly reactive are not significantly intelligent and the robots that are significantly intelligent are not highly reactive. The previous research has concentrated on modifications to internal computational structures of robots, ignoring the modifications to external environments (which can preserve both intelligence and reactivity). This work is the first to formalize the modification of an environment that externalizes the internal states.
