This paper presents a novel cognitive architecture for simulated autonomous robots in an artificial world. The design principle of the architecture enables the robotic system to both react to the world and perform premeditated actions. The cognitive architecture is a modular structure composed of a number of multilevel interconnected components, each with distributed, module-specific memory. The modular structure allows for simple portability of the architecture across a variety of robotic platforms. The behavior of the robot is based on the automatic creation of composite behavior from a set of predefined atomic behaviors. Facts about the world are discovered as the robot performs its tasks. An autonomous robot embedded within an artificial world (named Machina Cogitans) is equipped with this architecture, and a number of experiments are presented
