Abstract

This paper investigates the challenging problem of encoding the knowledge and reasoning processes involved in the common sense manipulation of physical objects. In particular we provide a formalisation of a domain involving rigid objects, holes and a string within a reasoning about actions and change framework. Therefore, this work investigates the formalisation and reasoning about flexible objects and void space (holes) in a single domain. Preliminary results of automated reasoning within this domain are also presented.
