CoSTAR: Instructing Collaborative Robots with Behavior Trees and Vision [article]

Chris Paxton, Andrew Hundt, Felix Jonathan, Kelleher Guerin, and Gregory D. Hager
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Our Behavior Tree-based task editor integrates high-level information from known object segmentation and pose estimation with spatial reasoning and robot actions to create robust task plans.  ...  For collaborative robots to become useful, end users who are not robotics experts must be able to instruct them to perform a variety of tasks.  ...  These characteristics make Behavior Trees ideal for representing collaborative robot task plans [2] .  ...
