Special issue on: Anchoring Symbols to Sensor Data
in Single and Multiple Robot Systems
The anchoring problem is an important aspect of the connection between
symbolic and sensory based processes in autonomous robotic systems.
Anchoring is the problem of how to create, and to maintain in time, the
connection between the symbol- and the signal-level representations of the
same physical object.
Most current solutions to the anchoring problem are developed on a system
by system basis for restricted domains. This is unfortunate, since having
a general theory of anchoring would greatly advance our ability to build
intelligent embedded systems, and to transfer techniques and results
across different systems. The aim of this special issue is to collect
relevant pieces of work that can be instrumental in building such a
We solicit original papers which report novel contributions to the
analysis and the solution of the anchoring problem in autonomous robots.
We especially encourage papers that present techniques which have been
experimentally validated on real single or multiple robot systems. Papers
of a more theoretical nature reporting strong fundamental results will
also be considered. Submissions will be peer reviewed for scientific and
presentation quality, and for relevance to this special issue.
