Title

Scheduling blackboards for interactive robots

Published
January 2005
Abstract

An increase in systems integration for example in humanoid robotics and intelligent environments, has called for better solutions to support multi-module integration. Blackboards can simplify construction of systems with large numbers of fine-grained interactions. In this paper we describe the use of scheduling blackboard used for developing interactive robots. Our blackboards, called whiteboards, both simplified and extend the blackboard model in a number of significant ways. Chief among their features are: an explicit temporal model; quality of service; publish-subscribe; queries; discrete messaging; streaming data; programming language independence; as well as a number of solutions to practical issues for improving development effort and runtime performance. Whiteboards present a compelling case for the use of scheduling blackboards in robotics, where multiple functionalities and modules need to be integrated into a coherent whole.
