Abstract The thesis presents research that investigates how two mobile robots can develop a shared lexicon from scratch of which the meaning is grounded in the real world. It is shown how the robots can solve the symbol grounding problem in a particular experimental setup. The model by which the robots do so is explained in detail. The experimental results are presented and discussed.
