Over the years, the field of mobile robots has yielded many architectural proposals. In the solutions we present here, we will consider four proposals ranging from the layered paradigm [Elfes87] to the blackboard structure [Shafer86].
The richness of the field permits interesting comparisons of the emphases different researchers have chosen for their robotic projects and between the trade-offs the choices entail. The next section surveys the factors to consider.
