Thank you to Tim and Lorenz for your suggestions.  I shall look at both. 
For those interested,  Tim has his masters thesis on-line with a nice review 
of earlier behavior engine implementations as well as overall robot control

Hello Alex.

Recently I have ported the Lua-based Fawkes Behavior Engine to ROS.
Might be worth a look. It is based on hybrid state machines and
emphasizes description over programming (by exploiting Lua's powerful
table structure), but still provides a full programming language to
provide a useful plumbing layer with re-usable behavior entities, that
can be combined to more complex ones.


I'm currently writing documentation on how to get started designing and
describing/programming behaviors, beyond installation and running the thing.
