Motion Planning For Mobile Manipulation Platforms

Motion Planning for Mobile Manipulation Platforms

Faculty: Maxim Likhachev

This project is concerned with developing high-dimensional motion planners that can control mobile manipulation robotic systems. The challenge is to develop planners that can do it in real-time and at the same time provide theoretical guarantees on performance such as completeness. Example problems include fully autonomous door opening and mobile manipulation of objects in cluttered spaces. This project is in collaboration with Willow Garage company.
