After over two decades of research in the field of assembly and task planning, an IEEE Technical Committee on Assembly and Task Planning has been created. One of the first activities of this committee has been to develop a taxonomy of the field. We will now present this taxonomy, which should be viewed as a dynamic description of the field that will change shape as the field progresses. The reasons for developing such a taxonomy are many: to aid in building a coherent picture of the field which… Expand
