Addressing cost-space chasms in manipulation planning

Dmitry Berenson, Thierry Simeon, Siddhartha S. Srinivasa
2011 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
Such chasms are particularly common in planning for manipulators because many useful cost functions induce narrow or lowerdimensional low-cost areas.  ...  Finding paths in high-dimensional spaces becomes difficult when we wish to optimize the cost of a path in addition to obeying feasibility constraints.  ...  We have also described general cost functions in workspace, task space, and C-space that are useful for manipulation planning and that induce such cost-space chasms.  ...
