报告题目：Motion Planning and Control for Autonomous Robots in Obstacle-rich Environments
报告人：Prof. Lihua Xie（Nanyang Technological University, Singapore）
Autonomous robots are playing an ever-increasing role in civilian, industrial and military fields. For accomplishing missions in complex environments, the capability of fully autonomous navigation while avoiding unexpected collisions is a fundamental and crucial requirement. In this talk, we shall discuss the motion planning problem, and present methodologies and system designs that enable robots to efficiently navigate in obstacle-rich environments. First, we discuss map-based motion planning based on model predictive control (MPC) and differential dynamic programming (DDP) for a single robot. Extensions to multi-robot motion planning are given. We further discuss map-less navigation via deep reinforcement learning. Simulations and experiments are given to demonstrate the proposed methods.
