This paper presents a new framework for constraint-based task specification of robot controllers. A task specification language (eTaSL) is defined as well as a corresponding implementation of a controller (eTC). This new framework is based on feature variables and a new concept referred to as expression graphs. It avoids some of the common pitfalls in previous frameworks, and provides a flexible and composable way to define robot control tasks. An architecture for a robot controller is proposed… CONTINUE READING
