A perceptual mechanism having a possibility to utilize advantages of both artificial intelligence and a reactive system is introduced into an autonomous intelligent robot. Empirical measurement that is a product of the interaction between the environment and the robot is implemented in the perceptual mechanism to interpret environmental information through a sensing system. The mechanism design concept and concrete examples are givep. Computational experiments demonstrate that the mechanism acquires empirical measurement for the behavior for passable openings.
