This paper describes an architecture for an information manager that is at the core of a sensor-based autonomous system. The architecture provides the means by which sensor-based data can be integrated with stored knowledge to provide the information needed for autonomous behavior. The overall architecture can be viewed as a community of independent processes, each of which interact with an active database whose structure mirrors that of the three-dimensional world.
