Robot control architectures are related to sensing, monitoring, and acting actions of the robots. They are an important part of each robot control and the coordination of their behaviors. There are different kinds of robotic architectures implemented by different kinds of robots.
Most of the control robot architectures are divided into following groups:
Reactive and Subsumption / Behavior-based control architectures (schema based);
Deliberative control architectures (hierarchical) or Sense-plan-act architectures;
Hybrid control architectures.
