Planning contact motion is important for many robotic tasks but di cult in general due to high variability and geometrical complexity of contact states. It is desirable to decompose the problem into simpler subproblems. A promising decomposition treats the problem as consisting of (1) automatic generation of a discrete contact state graph, and (2) planning contact transitions between neighboring contact states and contact motions within the same contact state. This paper addresses a divide-and… CONTINUE READING
