The technology about knowledge representation plays an increasingly important role in the autonomous operation of robots facing the complex and unstructured working environment.Knowledge representation focuses on the model of knowledge symbols and how to realize knowledge processing through reasoning procedures automatically.The robot knowledge representation framework and the latest application progress based on ontology representation and reasoning were reviewed.The technical background, realization methods of knowledge representation and reasoning, and recent research progress in the robotics field were summarized from deterministic knowledge and uncertain knowledge.And the future research direction of knowledge-enabled robots was predicted.

Key words: knowledge representation, knowledge reasoning, ontology, knowledge-enabled robot
