Abstract
Tekkotsu (the name means "framework" in Japanese) is an application development framework for the Sony AIBO robot that endeavors to provide an intuitive set of primitives for perception, manipulation, and control. The framework also addresses some of the human-robot interaction problems faced by mobile robot application developers. See www.Tekkotsu.org. The contributions of this work lie in three areas:
  1. Providing a set of intuitive, high level primitives for robotics that draw on insights from cognitive science.
  2. Making robot programming accessible to a wider audience by teaching students to use these primitives to compose complex behaviors.
  3. Offering a robotic platform that cognitive modeling systems could use to interface with the physical world.
