Here are the papers that we will cover in class:
P.H. Mowforth and P. Grant. "From Task Level Planning To Analogical Navigation." The Autonomous Mobile Robots and Its Applications -- IEEE/RSJ International Workshop on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS '89), pages 142--146, 1989.
You can access an electronic copy of this paper through the OU library. Start at http://www-lib.ou.edu/, choose "LORA," and under the databases, choose "IEEE Electronic Library (IEL)."
T.J. Pennings. "Do Dogs Know Calculus?" The College Mathematics Journal, 34 (3): 178--182, 2003.
You can access an electronic copy of this article from the Mathematics Association of America website at http://www.maa.org/features/elvisdog.pdf.
R.A. Brooks. "A Robust Layered Control System for a Mobile Robot." MIT AI Lab Memo No. 864, September 1985.
R.A. Brooks. "Planning is Just a Way of Avoiding Figuring Out What To Do Next." MIT AI Lab Working Paper No. 303, September 1987.
It does not appear to be currently possible to obtain this paper electronically in its original form. (If you can find this paper on the web, please let me know.)
However, this paper has been included as a chapter in Prof. Brooks' recent book Cambrian Intelligence, which is available to us at OU as an electronic book. Start at http://www-lib.ou.edu/, choose "Catalog," don't bother logging in (it is a security hole), just choose "Catalog" again, and search for "Cambrian Intelligence." Note: Unfortunately, this electronic book is only available to users of MS Windows systems. The book also contains Brooks' paper listed above as well.
S. Thrun. "To Know or Not to Know: On the Utility of Models in Mobile Robotics." AI Magazine, 18 (1): 47--54, 1997.
Reid G. Simmons, Richard Goodwin, Karen Zita Haigh, Sven Koenig, Joseph O'Sullivan, Manuela M. Veloso. "Xavier: Experience with a Layered Robot Architecture." SIGART Bulletin, pages 22--33, Fall 1997.
