Robot Motion Planning

Workshop (sadna)thumb thumb

Spring 2022

0368-3535-01

Course hours: Wednesday, 14:00-16:00
Location: Dan David 205

Instructor: Dan Halperin, danha AT post tau ac il
Office hours by appointment

Teaching assistant: Dror Livnat (drorlivnat AT post tau ac il)

Software helpdesk: Michael Bilevich (michaelmoshe at mail tau ac il)


General information: Motion planning algorithms compute collision-free motion paths for objects that move among obstacles.  They arise in robotics, graphical animation, surgical planning, navigation systems, computational biology and computer games, among other domains. In this workshop we will explore and apply algorithms for one of several robot systems. For example: (i) a fleet of blue robots that need to collect items in an environment cluttered with obstacles, while avoiding a fleet of red robots; (ii) two robot arms that need to carry out a joint task; (iii) drones that need to carry out a prescribed task while avoiding obstacles on their way as well as other drones. 

A typical project involves implementing motion planning algorithms for a robotic arm, an autonomous boat, a drone, or a Roomba like robot in simulation environment, or alternatively, implementing a similar task with physical robots. 


Class meetings

At the beginning of the workshop, the very basics of motion planning algorithms will be presented, and possible projects will be laid out. Below is the complete list of expected class meetings.

  • 23/2/22 - Introduction to robot motion planning + suggested projects 
  • 2/3/22 - More background, review of software tools 
  • 30/3/22 - Presentation of project plan
  • 1/6/22 - Presentation of POC (Location: Checkpoint building, room 380)
  • 7/9/22 - Presentation of the final project (Location: Checkpoint building, room 420)
Along the semester there will be separate/dedicated meetings with each team

Teamwork: The project is intended to involve a significant amount of teamwork. The recommended team size is three. Each team will choose a project among the list of projects, and submit the final project later in the summer.
