Hierarchical Planning Algorithms

Published

Author(s)

Alberto Lacaze

Abstract

A novel method for communicating commands in hierarchical planning control is presented. This new method can be used to warranty that plans created will be optimal within the defined planning graphs throughout the planning hierarchy. Boundary conditions are specified so that optimality can be warranted. Specific hierarchical planning examples are given for a group of off-road autonomous ground vehicles.
