Keywords: Robots, sensory systems, redundancy

Abstract: Reasons for and problems concerning the integration of large number of sensors in robotic systems are discussed. These include data collection, coordination and integration by means of state estimation. The need for unified approaches in handling highly redundant sensory systems is stated and solutions suggested.
