[hawesetal07cast] Nick Hawes, Michael Zillich and Jeremy Wyatt. BALT & CAST: Middleware for Cognitive Robotics. In The 16th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human interactive Communication (RO-MAN 2007), pages 998 -- 1003, IEEE. August 2007. [pdf] [bib]

In this paper we present a toolkit for implementing architectures for intelligent robotic systems. This toolkit is based on an architecture schema (a set of architecture design rules). The purpose of both the schema and toolkit is to facilitate research into information-processing architectures for state-of-the-art intelligent robots, whilst providing engineering solutions for the development of such systems. A robotic system implemented using the toolkit is presented to demonstrate its key features.

A (slightly) updated version of the previous tech report with the same name.
