Reality as a simulation of reality: robot illusions, fundamental limits, and a physical demonstration [article]

Dylan A. Shell, Jason M. O'Kane
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We consider problems in which robots conspire to present a view of the world that differs from reality.  ...  This difference gives a way of relating the simulating and the simulated systems in a form that is relative.  ...  PHYSICAL DEMONSTRATION IN THE ROBOTARIUM As a proof-of-concept, we implemented the illusion described in Example 5 both in simulation and on a physical robot testbed.  ...
