Applications Panel: Agents Applied to Autonomous Vehicles
Craig I. Schlenoff
In order to make an unmanned vehicle drive truly autonomously, many different software components are needed. Each of these components is tasked with providing a particular function that is necessary to accomplish the ultimate goal of autonomous driving. Typical functions include perception, sensory processing, world modeling, planning, route following, behavior generation and value judgment. Each component can be seen as an individual agent, and the entire system can be viewed as an agent architecture. The agent architecture that is the focus of this paper is the RCS Control System (RCS)  developed in the Intelligent Systems Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
