On the completeness of ensembles of motion planners for decentralized planning

Ross A. Knepper, Daniela Rus
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
The planners are assumed to divide the total planning problem across some parameter space(s), such as task space, state space, action space, or time.  ...  We provide a set of sufficient conditions to establish the completeness of an ensemble of motion plannersthat is, a set of loosely-coupled motion planners that produce a unified result.  ...  The ability to "park" the robots for arbitrarily long enables them to execute a complete planning algorithm.  ...

Fast Scheduling of Multi-Robot Teams with Temporospatial Constraints

Matthew Gombolay, Ronald Wilcox, Julie Shah
2013 Robotics: Science and Systems IX  
These systems must also be capable of replanning onthe-fly to adapt to disturbances in the schedule and to respond to people working in close physical proximity.  ...  New uses of robotics in traditionally manual manufacturing processes require the careful choreography of human and robotic agents to support safe and efficient coordinated work.  ...  The third change we make is to enable the user to specify a intra-task and subtask deadlines.  ...
