Abstract
Robots of the future will act in the real world. To realize robots with the common sense to do this will, it is generally believed, require massively parallel processing. This is a problem for those of us who want to do exper iments with robots in the real world today-it is hard to build active, limb er situated robots when they have to carry along heavy brains. Our answer i s "remote-brained robots." A remote-brained robot is designed to have the b rain and body separate, both conceptually and physically. It allows us to t ie artificial intelligence (AI) with massive parallelism directly to the re al world, enabling the verification of high-level AI techniques, which coul d previously only be used in simulation. Once the brain is placed remotely from the body, it encourages us to investigate many important research topi cs of embodied agents working in the real world. This paper describes such platform for future robotics and principal experiments done on the platform .
