Abstract

What dynamics can enable a robot to continuously develop new visual know-how? We present a first experimental investigation where an AIBO robot develops visual competences from scratch driven only by internal motivations. The motivational principles used by the robot are independent of any particular task. As a consequence, they can constitute the basis for a general approach to sensory-motor development.

Keywords: development robotics, aibo, active vision, motivations, awareness
