M E 780: Robot Motion Planning

  • Catalog Description:
    A unified view on geometric, algorithmic, and computational issues of automatic planning of motion for mobile robots and arm manipulators in a complex environment. Planning with complete information--configuration space, connectivity graphs, computational complexity; with partial information--algorithm convergence, topological issues. Effect of system kinematics. Relation between sensing media and algorithm efficiency.
