Robotic systems typically include three components: a mechanism which is capable of exerting forces and torques on the environment, a perception system for sensing the world and a decision and control system which modulates the robot’s behavior to achieve the desired ends. In this module we will consider the problem of how a robot decides what to do to achieve its goals. This problem is often referred to as Planning and it has been formulated in various ways to model different situations.
You will learn some of the most common approaches to addressing this problem including graph-based methods, potential fields, randomized planners and optimization-based methods. Throughout the course, we will discuss the aspects of the problem that make planning challenging.
