  booktitle={AAAI Spring Symposium: Designing Intelligent Robots},
We propose an approach to configuration planning for robotic systems in which plans are represented as constraint networks and planning is defined as search in the space of such networks. The approach supports reasoning about time, resources, and information dependencies between actions. In addition, the system can leverage the flexibility of such networks at execution time to support dynamic goal posting and re-planning. 
Configuration Planning with Temporal Constraints
This paper addresses temporal configuration planning in which information availability and goals are linked to temporal intervals which are subject to constrains and proposes and compares two approaches to configuration planning.
A Framework for Task Planning in Heterogeneous Multi Robot Systems Based on Robot Capabilities
This work proposes a platform-independent model of robot capabilities which it uses as a planning domain, and extends existing planning techniques to support two requirements: generating new objects during planning; and, required concurrency of actions due to data flow which can be cyclic.
Planning and Execution of Robot Tasks Based on a Platform-Independent Model of Robot Capabilities
This work proposes a widely usable model of robot capabilities and presents an integrated framework for task planning and task execution using this model, and presents results on planning and execution of an object transportation task in simulation.
A Planner for Ambient Assisted Living: From High-Level Reasoning to Low-Level Robot Execution and Back
This work describes a plannerable to cope with the above challenges and shows in particular how this planner has been incorporated in closed-loop into a full robotic system that performs daily tasks in support of elderly people.
Learning context-aware mobile robot navigation in home environments
An approach to make planning adaptive in order to enable context-aware mobile robot navigation is presented, and it is shown that the learning system can effectively exploit historical data about navigation performance to modify the models in the planner.
Empirical Methods for Evaluating Properties of Configuration Planning Algorithms
This paper summarizes the definitions used by a few different research groups, and explains two empiric method for comparing planning algorithms, based on statistics, which are a first step towards numerically comparing performances of the different configuration planning methods proposed by the community.
Too cool for school - adding social constraints in human aware planning
A method for extending HAP to so-called Socially Aware planning, which is able to define social norms and rules which are taken into account by the planning mechanism to obtain plans consisting of socially adjusted behaviors.
A Software Suite for the Control and the Monitoring of Adaptive Robotic Ecologies
The characteristic requirements dictated by robotic ecology are illustrated, the experience in developing adaptive robotic ecologies is discussed, and an overview of the specific solutions developed as part of the EU FP7 RUBICON Project is provided.
An ambient intelligence approach for learning in smart robotic environments
The solution presented in this paper is based upon a type of compositional adaptation where (possibly multiple) plans of actions are created through planning and involve the activation of pre‐existing capabilities.


A temporal logic-based planning and execution monitoring framework for unmanned aircraft systems
This article presents a temporal logic-based task planning and execution monitoring framework and its integration into a fully deployed rotor-based unmanned aircraft system developed in the laboratory, and shows how formulas in the same logic can be used to specify the desired behavior of the system and its environment.
Casper: Space Exploration through Continuous Planning
The Casper (continuous activity, scheduling, planning, execution, and replanning) software system provides critical reasoning capabilities to robotic explorers and is looked at at the Three Corner Sat and the Autonomous Sciencecraft Constellation missions, highlighting Casper's contributions to each.
Representation and Control in IxTeT, a Temporal Planner
This paper presents a temporal planner, called IxTeT, arguing for a compromise between the expressiveness and the efficiency of the search, with two important procedures, called "feasibility" and "satisfiability", dealing respectively with goal decomposition and conflict resolution.
Building Multirobot Coalitions Through Automated Task Solution Synthesis
This paper presents a reasoning system that enables a group of heterogeneous robots to form coalitions to accomplish a multirobot task using tightly coupled sensor sharing, and presents a distributed version of ASyMTRe, which uses communication to enable distributed coalition formation.
A deliberative architecture for AUV control
This paper presents an agent architecture developed to overcome this limitation through on-board planning using Constraint- based Reasoning and is integrated and tested in simulation and at sea.
