in AI Magazin, 16:1, 1995.


Rhino was the University of Bonn's entry in the 1994 AAAI mobile robot competition. Rhino is a mobile robot designed for indoor navigation and manipulation tasks. The general scientific goal of the Rhino project is the development and the analysis of autonomous and complex learning systems. This paper briefly describes the major components of the Rhino control software, as they were exhibited at the competition. It also sketches the basic philosophy of the Rhino architecture, and discusses some of the lessons that we learned during the competition.
