    Abstract

    Unifying the symbolic and geometric representations and algorithms used in AI and robotics is an important challenge for both fields. We take a small step in this direction by presenting an interface between geometric reasoning and a popular class of agent systems, in a way that uses some of the agent’s available constructs and semantics. We then describe how certain kinds of information can be extracted from the geometric model of the world and used in agent reasoning. We motivate our concepts and algorithms within the context of a real-world production system.
