Hazard: A Framework Towards Connecting Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

Peter J. Andersson1

Abstract

The gaming industry has started to look for solutions in the Artificial intelligence (AI) research community and work has begun with common standards for integration. At the same time, few robotic systems in development use already developed AI frameworks and technologies. In this article, we present the development and evaluation of the Hazard framework that has been used to rapidly create simulations for development of cognitive systems. Implementations includes for example a dialogue system that transparently can connect to either an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or a simulated counterpart. Hazard is found suitable for developing simulations supporting high-level AI development and we identify and propose a solution to the factors that make the framework unsuitable for lower level robotic specific tasks such as event/chronicle recognition.
