|Abstract:|| We present a preliminary approach to the coordination and
control of sensing for action oriented perception in the Situation Calculus.
We essentially consider visual perception, although the approach can be
generalized to other forms of perception. We show that perception is an
inference process that uses different levels of refinement, namely, direct
perception, selective sense perception and, finally, meaningful perception.
We take a cautious poiunt of view to perception which means that we see
it as a reasoning process that can be ambiguous and mistaken. Agents can
be committed to be attentive so as to make no mistakes. Wehn the theory
does not entail that a mistake occurred then perception is considered veridic.
Ambiguity is resolved via hypothetical reasoning; we call this non monotonic
reasoning process that combines sensing, logical inference and hypotheses,
