    • Planning in constraint space for multi-body manipulation tasks 

      Erdogan, Can (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-05)
      Robots are inherently limited by physical constraints on their link lengths, motor torques, battery power and structural rigidity. To thrive in circumstances that push these limits, such as in search and rescue scenarios, ...
    • Planning in Constraint Space: Automated Design of Functional Structures 

      Erdogan, Can; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-05)
      On the path to full autonomy, robotic agents have to learn how to manipulate their environments for their benefit. In particular, the ability to design structures that are functional in overcoming challenges is imperative. ...
    • Planning in logistics: a survey 

      Kolhe, Pushkar; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAssociation for Computing Machinery, 2010-09)
      Planning is an essential part of any logistics system. The paper tries to generalize the view of a logistics planner by framing it as a knapsack problem. We show how the various variants of the knapsack problem compare for ...
    • Planning in the Continuous Domain: a Generalized Belief Space Approach for Autonomous Navigation in Unknown Environments 

      Indelman, Vadim; Carlone, Luca; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
      We investigate the problem of planning under uncertainty, with application to mobile robotics. We propose a probabilistic framework in which the robot bases its decisions on the generalized belief, which is a probabilistic ...
    • Planning to Behave: A Hybrid Deliberative/Reactive Robot Control Architecture for Mobile Manipulation 

      Arkin, Ronald C.; MacKenzie, Douglas Christopher (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)
      Hybrid architectures provide an effective means for integrating world knowledge with reactive control. This paper describes the motivation behind the architectural decision to hybridize, and presents a case study in mobile ...
    • Planning Under Uncertainty in the Continuous Domain: A Generalized Belief Space Approach 

      Indelman, Vadim; Carlone, Luca; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014)
      This work investigates the problem of planning under uncertainty, with application to mobile robotics. We propose a probabilistic framework in which the robot bases its decisions on the generalized belief , which is ...
    • Planning with Movable Obstacles in Continuous Environments with Uncertain Dynamics 

      Levihn, Martin; Scholz, Jonathan; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-05)
      In this paper we present a decision theoretic planner for the problem of Navigation Among Movable Obstacles (NAMO) operating under conditions faced by real robotic systems. While planners for the NAMO domain exist, they ...
    • Player Localization Using Multiple Static Cameras for Sports Visualization 

      Hamid, Raffay; Kumar, Ram Krishan; Grundmann, Matthias; Kim, Kihwan; Essa, Irfan; Hodgins, Jessica (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-06)
      We present a novel approach for robust localization of multiple people observed using multiple cameras. We use this location information to generate sports visualizations, which include displaying a virtual offside line ...
    • A Pliable Hybrid Architecture for Code Isolation 

      Ganev, Ivan Borissov (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-05-03)
      The unprecedented growth of computing power and communication bandwidth in the last few decades has driven an explosion in the size and complexity of application software. Specifically, it has spurred an almost universal ...
