Abstract:In this paper, an architecture that tightly couples the perceptionand the generation of a action will be described. The concept of internal forward models will be introduced, and the imitation architecture will subsequently be developed as a parallel set of behaviours paired with forward models. Using a dynamics simulator of a thirteen degrees of freedom robot it will be demonstrated how such an architecture can be used to generate an action as well as perceiving it when generated by others.
