%X We propose basic mechanisms in support to autonomous, artificial animated agents. We use an approach based on robotics control theory, dealing with physics constraints and dynamics and kinematics issues, providing a well structured way to control the agent resources. We validate the mechanisms by presenting three computer animated platforms with different structures (sensors, actuators, and dynamics) which have used them. As a practical result, our animated agents are able to perform different tasks on the top of the same control structure.
%O The conference was held in Gramado, RS, Brazil, from October 17 to 20.
