Abstract : Progress has been made on four components of our second generation intelligent system, SUCCESSOR: (A) a geometric modeling system, (B) an advanced symbolic graphics system, (C) a system for matching structures from stereo pairs and motion sequences, and (D) ATLAS, a model-based planning system for automating the planning of assemblies development of common lisp were made to make our programs portable and to enable us to work on several computers. These developments include: SLISP a common LISP subset, on VAX: (b) TAIL, a version of SLISP on SUN workstations; (c) a real time garbage collection algorithm for Lisp in support of robotics. In addition, small development of the AL programming system continued. (kr)
