Abstract

Within a robotic environment where both a mechanical manipulator and an artificial eye must cooperate in order to perform a well specified task (perhaps a changing one in time) the software environment and programming language play a crucial role in the design and implementation of the control strategies. For this reason both from the area of PR and AI many suggestions have been proposed in order to have convenient software tools to help in writing, testing and debugging programs that must operate within a robotic environment.
