In this paper we outline how motion description languages provide useful tools when designing multi-modal control laws in robotics. Of particular importance is the introduction of the description length as a measure of how complicated a given control procedure is. This measure corresponds to the number of bits needed for coding the input string. Description length arguments can furthermore be invoked for selecting sensors and actuators in a given robotics application, thus providing a unified framework in which a number of major areas of robotics research can coexist.
