In this paper, we present a domain recompilation-based approach towards specifying and handling state-trajectory constraints in Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) planning paradigm. The proposed constraint specification language is inspired by the PDDL3.0 constructs. The domain-recompilation technique is based on automata templates for the PDDL modal(More)
