There is evidence that humans understand how the world goes through narrative. We discuss what it might mean for embodied robots to understand the world, and communicate that understanding, in a similar manner. We suggest an architecture for adding narrative to robot cognition, and an experimental scenario for investigating the narrative hypothesis in a combination of physical and simulated robots.
