The field of artificial intelligence and robotics has long adapted an anthropocentric view, putting the intelligence structures of humans as the guiding requirements for developing artificial intelligence. This paper use observations of a robotic lawnmower to demonstrate how we can apply Jakob von Uexküll's Umwelt theory to describe robots and robot behavior to further our understanding of the behavior of different kinds robots.
