  • Waters, Richard C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03-19)
    This paper discusses three main problems associated with the control of the motion of a mechanical arm. 1) Transformation between different coordinate systems used to describe the state of the arm. 2) Calculation of ...
  • Roylance, Gerald (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-07)
    How to guide for some of the printing utilities in the AI lab. Describes how TEX tiles are processed and how some illustrations may be merged into the final copy. Also describes how to use TEX to print on 8.5x14 (legal) ...
  • Yonezawa, Akinori (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-06)
    Meta-evaluation is a process which symbolically evaluates an actor and checks to see whether the actor fulfills its contract (specification). A formalism for writing contracts for actors with side-effects is presented. ...

    Meta-evaluation is a process which symbolically evaluates an actor and checks to see whether the actor fulfills its contract (specification). A formalism for writing contracts for actors with side-effects which allow sharing ...
  • Waters, Richard C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-07)
    The plan method analyzes the structure of a program. The plan which results from applying the method represents this structure by specifying how the parts of the program interact. This paper demonstrates the utility of the ...
  • Billmers, Meyer A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-03)
    This working paper describes the facilities of the mini-robot group and the software available to persons using those facilities.
  • Billmers, Meyer A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-06)
    This USER'S GUIDE is in two parts. Part 1 describes the facilities of the mini-robot group 11/45 and the software available to persons using those facilities. It is intended for those writing their own programs to be run ...
  • Billmers, Meyer A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-06)
    Part 2 of the MINI-ROBOT USER'S GUIDE describes those devices attached to the mini-robot system which may be accessed from ITS, and describes the appropriate software for accessing them. Specifically, the photowriter, ...
  • Flynn, Anita M.; Brooks, Rodney A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-11)
    The MIT Mobile Robot Project began in January of 1985 with the objective of building machines that could operate autonomously and robustly in dynamically changing environments. We now have four working robots, each ...
  • Brooks, Rodney A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-02)
    We are building a mobile robot which will roam around the AI lab observing and later perhaps doing. Our approach to building the robot and its controlling software differs from that used in many other projects in a number ...
  • Chapman, David (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-06)
    AI problem solvers have almost always been given a complete and correct axiomatization of their problem domain and of the operators available to change it. Here I discuss a paradigm for problem solving in which the problem ...
  • Highleyman, Liz A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-02)
    This is a manual for complete beginners. It assumes no knowledge of the MIT computer systems. This guide will teach you how to log onto the computer called OZ, a DEC PDP-20 computer running the TWENEX (TOPS-20) operating ...
  • Baker, Henry G. Jr. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-03-16)
    This note describes a method for allocating storage among the various spaces in the MACLISP Implementation of LISP. The optimal strategy which minimizes garbage collector effort allocates free storage among the various ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-06)
    Some of the information that as used in arriving at a design for a high quality image input device is documented. The device uses a PIN photo-diode directly coupled to an FET-input op-amp as the sensor and two moving-iron ...
  • Highleyman, Liz A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-05)
    This is a manual for complete beginners. It requires little knowledge of the MIT computer systems, and assumes no knowledge of the UNIX operating system. This guide will show you how to log onto the AI Lab's SUN system ...
  • Strat, Thomas M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-01)
    The shape of an object can be determined from the shading in a single image by solving a first-order, non-linear partial differential equation. The method of characteristics can be used to do this, but it suffers from a ...
  • Ikeuchi, Katsushi (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-11)
    An iterative method of using occluding boundary information is proposed to compute surface slope from shading. We use a stereographic space rather than the more commonly used gradient space in order to express occluding ...
  • Freuder, Eugene C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971-02)
  • Rieger, Chuck (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-11)
    Plan synthesis and language comprehension, or more generally, the act of discovering how one perception relates to others, are two sides of the same coin, because they both rely on a knowledge of cause and effect - algorithmic ...
  • Pfister, Gregory F. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03-29)
