The execution of tasks for a robotic agent embedded in a dynamic environment brings about several challenges, due to unpredictable (or unobservable) events, and to inaccurate perception. Moreover, the agent can perform multiple tasks and each task can be achieved by applying different plans, therefore the decision about which strategy is the most convenient, given the current situation of the world, is important for assessing an intelligent overall behavior of the agent. This paper tackles the problem of on-line execution monitoring in a novel way with respect to previous work, since: 1) it considers uncertainty in the duration of actions with a probabilistic model of action duration; 2) it evaluates the cost of each possible plan at run-time in terms of probability of successful termination within a desired expected time. The approach has been evaluated both in a robotic soccer and a surveillance scenario.

Abstract

The execution of tasks for a robotic agent embedded in a dynamic environment brings about several challenges, due to unpredictable (or unobservable) events, and to inaccurate perception. Moreover, the agent can perform multiple tasks and each task can be achieved by applying different plans, therefore the decision about which strategy is the most convenient, given the current situation of the world, is important for assessing an intelligent overall behavior of the agent. This paper tackles the problem of on-line execution monitoring in a novel way with respect to previous work, since: 1) it considers uncertainty in the duration of actions with a probabilistic model of action duration; 2) it evaluates the cost of each possible plan at run-time in terms of probability of successful termination within a desired expected time. The approach has been evaluated both in a robotic soccer and a surveillance scenario.
