Towards an Integrated Approach to Planning and Execution


Building a robotics system is inherently an integration challenge. A diverse set of software components must be combined and the interaction with the physical world places high demands on robustness and fault tolerance. Still, task-level planning and reasoning for autonomous mobile robots – that claims to help in solving in some of these challenges by automatic and flexible behavior design – is still the exception rather than the norm.

We discuss some pieces to the puzzle to change this picture.
