Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6114)


The paper addresses the problem of data representation collected during the work of a robot controlled by reactive, behaviour-based system. This type of systems are intended to work with low accuracy sensors. That implies there are many problems with building models of a workspace. In this work some aspects of processing, storing and using this data are presented. The usage of the concept named activity trace is discussed in the work.
