Robot-Object Interaction Language




Shelton, Christin

Type of Degree



Computer Science


As the world anticipates receiving helper robots into their homes there are still a few more hurdles that the robotics field must leap over in order for us to reach such a goal. The main issues that the discipline faces are the snowflake robot designs (no two are alike) and the large learning curve for robot programming. These issues create a difficulty and an inconsistency in design and usability. To resolve these issues, a language structure has been designed to communicate with the programming language of any robot enabling the robot to manipulate any object. Thus, the hypothesis submitted in this proposal states that any robot is capable of interacting with any real world object to the robots’ optimality and within its limitations.
