The Cognitive Controller (CoCo) is a new, three-tiered control architecture for autonomous agents that combines reactive and deliberative components. A behaviour-based reactive module ensures that the agent can gracefully handle the various real-time challenges of its environment, while a logic-based deliberative module endows the agent with the ability to "think ahead", performing more complex high-level tasks that require planning. A plan execution and monitoring module establishes an
