  • Simultaneous path planning and free space exploration with skin sensor

    This paper addresses a general class of problems for sensor-based path planning and exploration for robots moving in unknown environments. The robot is assumed to be equipped with a large number of proximity sensors mounted on its body (a "skin" sensor). Robot's own motion is used to sense the free space, analogous to a blind person "groping and exploring" using his sense of touch. This sensed free space can be memorized and used to further plan the robot's motion. Using this key idea, we propose a general framework for such skin sensor based motion planning that is valid for robots with large degrees of freedom. The specific motion-planning algorithm developed uses a variant of the probabilistic roadmap method. A novel "metric" based on the notion of C-zone map for robot's movement that results in efficient exploration of configuration space is proposed and implemented. Planar simulations demonstrate our results.

  • Algorithms for planning and control of robot motions [TC Spotlight]

    Robot motion planning and control is an essential component in creating autonomous systems that are able to execute high-level tasks for navigating and manipulating objects in challenging environments. Motion planning has led to active research over the past decades. Most of the research focused on the computational issue of generating feasible paths that lead the robot to a desired goal, while generally ignoring control concerns such as feedback, optimum, and uncertainty. The breakthrough achieved with sampling-based algorithms leads to effective techniques for hard, high-dimensional problems, and the recent improvements brought motion-planning algorithms closer to applicability in real problems. Nowadays, the practical interest of the state- of-the-art techniques is no longer restricted to robotics but extends to challenging problems arising in such diverse fields as graphics animation, virtual prototyping, and computational biology.

  • Motion planning for metamorphic systems: feasibility, decidability, and distributed reconfiguration

    In this paper, we address a number of issues related to motion planning and analysis of rectangular metamorphic robotic systems. We first present a distributed algorithm for reconfiguration that applies to a relatively large subclass of configurations, called horizontally convex configurations. We then discuss several fundamental questions in the analysis of metamorphic systems. In particular, the following two questions are shown to be decidable: 1) whether a given set of motion rules maintains connectivity; 2) whether a goal configuration is reachable from a given initial configuration (at specified locations). In the general case in which each module has an internal state, the following is shown to be undecidable: given a set of motion rules, whether there exists a certain type of configuration called a uniform straight-chain configuration that yields a disconnected configuration.

  • How to move a chair through a door

    We define the door-width of a simple polygon (a 'chair') and give an O(n<sup>2</sup>) algorithm for computing its door-width. It is first shown that all passages of the chair through the door can be reduced to a sequence of certain elementary motions. We introduce the technique of constraint analysis in characterizing elementary motions. Our algorithm actually constructs a motion of the chair through a door, and thus is a 'local-expert' for planning motion through doors. Such algorithms have applications in more general motion-planning systems in robotics.

  • To push or not to push: on the rearrangement of movable objects by a mobile robot

    Formulates and addresses the problem of planning a pushing manipulation by a mobile robot which tries to rearrange several movable objects in its work space. The authors present an algorithm which, when given a set of goal configurations, plans a pushing path to the "cheapest" goal or announces that no such path exists. The pushing path is found using a two phase procedure: context sensitive back propagation of a cost function, and a pushing path restoration phase. The latter is based on a gradient descent procedure which considers, at each step, only admissible neighboring configurations. The admissibility mechanism provides a primary tool for expressing the unique characteristics of the pushing manipulation. It also allows a full integration of any geometrical constraints imposed by the pushing robot and the pushed objects. The authors have proved the algorithm to be optimal and (resolution-) complete and give some simulation results in different scenarios, as well as some experimental results using a real platform.

  • Channel learning and communication-aware motion planning in mobile networks

    In this paper we propose a communication-aware motion planning framework to ensure robust cooperative operation of a mobile network in realistic communication environments. We use a probabilistic multi-scale model for channel characterization. We then utilize our previously proposed model-based channel prediction framework in order to devise communication-aware motion- planning approaches. We first propose a motion generation strategy that optimally plans the trajectory of the robot in order to improve its channel learning in an environment. We then propose a communication-aware navigation approach in which link quality predictions are combined with sensing goals in order to ensure cooperative and networked task accomplishment. Our simulation results show the superior performance of our proposed communication-aware motion planning framework.

  • Towards planning with force constraints: on the mobility of bodies in contact

    A configuration-space-based approach for analyzing the interactions and mobility of objects in quasi-static contact is described. This analysis is motivated by a class of articulated robot motion-planning problems that are not handled by current planning systems. Examples are a snake-like robot that crawls inside a tunnel by bracing against the tunnel walls, a limbed robot (analogous to a monkey) that climbs a trussed structure by pushing and pulling, and a dextrous robotic hand that moves its fingers along an object while holding it stationary. In these examples, one must plan the robot motion to satisfy high-level goals while maintaining quasistatic stability. Planning the hand-hold states (analogous to the hand-holds used by rock climbers between dynamically moving states) where the robot mechanism is at a static equilibrium is considered primarily. The results obtained are some of the first steps necessary to develop planning paradigms for this class of problems. Although the authors have the general class of quasistatic planning problems in mind, the authors use the language of grasping for discussion.<<ETX>>

  • Fast generator of multiple collision-free trajectories in dynamic environments

    This paper presents a fast technique for obtaining a set of collision-free trajectories for a mobile robot under a continuous time approach. Given a mobile-robot path, a set of speeds for the mobile robot is generated with the constraint of avoiding collision with the moving obstacles in sight. Afterwards, this set of speeds is easily updated, when a change in the original mobile-robot path is applied. Collision-free trajectories that do not verify the dynamic constraints of the mobile robot are simply rejected

  • Joint-angle-drift remedy of three-link planar robot arm performing different types of end-effector trajectories

    In this paper, the quadratic-programming (QP) based scheme-formulation is employed to handle the joint-angle-drift problem of a redundant three-link planar robot arm with its end-effector moving along different types of trajectories (e.g., a Lissajous-figure path, a triangular path and an elliptical path). The physical constraints such as joint limits and joint velocity limits are considered as well. A series of computer-simulations are conducted, which demonstrate the effectiveness of such a scheme-formulation and its neural-network solver on motion planning.

  • Computation of configuration-space obstacles using the fast Fourier transform

    This paper presents a new method for computing the configuration-space map of obstacles that is used in motion-planning algorithms. The method derives from the observation that, when the robot is a rigid object that can only translate, the configuration space is a convolution of the workspace and the robot. This convolution is computed with the use of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm. The method is particularly promising for workspaces with many and/or complicated obstacles, or when the shape of the robot is not simple. It is an inherently parallel method that can significantly benefit from existing experience and hardware on the FFT.<<ETX>>
