HERMIES-III is a large mobile robot designed for human-scale experiments. The initial experiment with the robot (DEMO 89) was the cleanup of a simulated chemical spill. To perform the experiment, the robot was required to plan a path through an already known world, navigate along the path (avoiding unexpected obstacles), and locate and remove debris from a target area. A description is given of the software system that was developed to perform the experiment. The software system consisted of 19 processes that operated on a distributed set of heterogeneous computers
