The goal of this project is to develop planning algorithms for use in manipulation tasks. Our work focuses on planning paths and grasps for a variety of robots meant to operate in the home, such as mobile manipulators and humanoid robots. These new algorithms will enable robots to interact with their environments by accomplishing complex manipulation tasks autonomously.
