In this paper we describe the CoSy Architecture
Schema, and the software toolkit we have built to allow us
to produce instantiations of this schema for intelligent robots.
Although the schema does not specify a cognitive model per se,
it constrains the space of models that can be built from it. Along
with descriptions of the schema and toolkit we present the motivation
behind our designs (a need to explore the design-space
of information-processing architectures for intelligent systems),
and a discussion of the kinds of design, implementation and
information-processing models they support.
