​SemaFORR is a cognitively-based architecture for autonomous robot navigation. Grounded in research from geographers and psychologists, SemaFORR enables a robot to learn a spatial model as it explores its environment without a map. A robot with SemaFORR can explain its decisions, and share the map with other robots. This talk describes SemaFORR’s cognitive foundations and its propensity for reactive behavior, and provides results on extensive testing in environments that model different connectivity. It also covers preliminary work on multiple robots that navigate simultaneously, planning, and navigation in models of complex real-world spaces.
