Inspite of much work done in Artificial Intelligence in respect to intelligent robots we don't believe that robotics has really profited from the achieved results so far. Current robots seem to be more hampered by their difficulties in basic perception and motion control than by lacking planning abilities. We discuss in our paper a class of Al methods which could have importance for robotics in the actual state of development already: In Al we invent new execution models, implement and explore the way of programming based on them. Such an programming method - based on a particular view of the execution is called a "programming style". Al has experienced during its development the invention on diverse programming styles. Some of them have been described as knowledge representation schemes. In this paper, we try to characterize some of the programming styles and to prove that they are useful for robotics.
