Conceptual Space for Multi-robot Systems

Symbolic representation and connectionist have various advantages, but they have inevitable disadvantages: frame problem, frame grounding, and difficulty in measuring similarity between objects. Especially, computing similarity is quite important in induction and learning. Thus, we suggest a memory model as well as memory update rules, and the memory model is based on G├Ądenfors’ the conceptual spaces compensating the problems of classical knowledge representations. The memory model is tested in a simulation environment with a mission that two heterogeneous robots equipped with different sensors search chemical weapons in an indoor environment.
