Static Environment

A static environment consists of unchanging surroundings in which the agent navigates. The agent, then, does not need to adapt to new situations, nor do its designers need to concern themselves with the issue of inconsistencies of the world model within the agent itself. An example of such an environment would be a bare office setting, where the doorways and halls never change, and there are no moving objects.

Although this is an ideal environment for an agent to navigate in, the actual world is not at all static, and the goal of such projects is to create an agent that can navigate in the "real" world, which usually is dynamic.
