Golog/ConGolog/IndiGolog Software

A list of available implementations of Golog, ConGolog, IndiGolog, etc. is maintained on the University of Toronto Cognitive Robotics Group web site.

At York, Alexei Lapouchnian and I have developed the IG-OAAlib implementation of IndiGolog for use in combination with SRI's Open Agent Architecture communication/matchmaking infrastructure.

At the University of Toronto, Maurice Pagnucco and Hector Levesque have developed an implementation of IndiGolog for use with Lego MINDSTORM robots called Legolog.

We hope to have a better and more generic implementation of IndiGolog available in the near future. Until then, we recommend the above implementations, which can be used without the OAA/Lego robot interfaces.
