The goal of this project is to investigate the implementation of a planning algorithm for the problem of placing objects on a cluttered surface with a PR-2 mobile manipulator. The original push planning algorithm  was initially developed as a simulation. We modified the simulator for execution in real-world cluttered environments. This paper discusses the challenges of implementation and presents empirical results that determine how well the simulator models the real world as clutter is pushed and collides with other objects.
