Trends in robot application demand powerful languages allowing sensor integration and the development of well-structured high-level programs. This paper proposes a new language structure for intelligent robots that may be equipped with different specialized sensors and actuators, in order to control their real-time behaviour. In this research, the proposed language structure and its capability to describe intelligent robot motion using multisensor feedback and to deal with complicated real-time actions in a real environment is explained. This paper also introduces the format description of the new language structure and illustrates its application to robot sensory feedback using the example of map-based navigation and motion control in a real environment implemented on the mobile robot Yamabico-9.
