Integrating ASP into ROS for Reasoning in Robots


Knowledge representation and reasoning capacities are vital to cognitive robotics because they provide higher level functionalities for reasoning about actions, environments, goals, perception, etc. Although Answer Set Programming (ASP) is well suited for modelling such func- tions, there was so far no seamless way to use ASP in a robotic setting.We address this shortcoming and show how a recently developed ASP sys- tem can be harnessed to provide appropriate reasoning capacities within a robotic system. To be more precise, we furnish a package integrating the new version of the ASP solver clingo with the popular open-source robotic middleware ROS. The resulting system, ROSoClingo, provides a generic way by which an ASP program can be used to control the behaviour of a robot and to respond to the results of the robot's actions.
