CS 4803/8803: RIP - Robot Intelligence - Planning in Action
TR 1:35-2:55, Boggs 228
Instructor: Mike Stilman
TSRB 240 Thursday 12:00 - 1:00 or by appointment.
||For Discussion and Collaboration on projects: Course Wiki|
We discuss algorithms for robots and other complex systems that make intelligent decisions in high dimensional or continuous spaces of options. Intelligent decisions take into account both present and future constraints on the system. The course will cover methods for planning with symbolic, numerical, geometric and physical constraints. Topics will range from classical and stochastic planning to continuous robot domains and hybrid control of dynamic systems.
