Pick-Up What?

A. Saffiotti

Abstract
The execution of actions in the real world involves physical operations on physical objects. In order to perform these operations, an embedded agent needs to anchor its internal representations of these objects to physical elements in the environment. We sketch a preliminary account of the anchoring problem where the object of an action is represented by a description, in terms of perceptual properties, of the class of physical objects that are ``the right ones'' for that action. We illustrate our account by showing how it has been used to help autonomous navigation of a mobile robot.
