Robustness Envelopes for Temporal Plans

Michael Cashmore, Alessandro Cimatti, Daniele Magazzeni, Andrea Micheli, Parisa Zehtabi
To achieve practical execution, planners must produce temporal plans with some degree of run-time adaptability.  ...  An even more important problem is to assess the effect of discrepancies between the model used for planning and the execution environment.We propose an approach to compute the "robustness envelope" (i.e  ...  (Nilsson, Kvarnström, and Doherty 2018) consider temporal uncertainty in their planning model synthesizing plans that are guaranteed to achieve the goal under any possible modeled contingency.  ...
