Dual Dynamics (DD) is a mathematical model of a behavior control system for mobile autonomous robots. Behaviors are specified through differential equations; forming a global dynamical system made of behavior subsystems which interact in a number of ways. DD models can be directly compiled into executable code. The article (i) explains the model; (ii) sketches the Dual Dynamics Designer (DDD) environment that we use for the design; simulation; implementation and documentation; and (iii) illustrates our approach with the example of kicking a moving ball into a goal.
