Mobile Manipulation

Andy1The goal of Autonomous Mobile Manipulation is the execution of complex manipulation tasks in unstructured and dynamic environments, in which cooperation with humans may be required. To achieve this goal, several scientific and engineering challenges, currently beyond the state of the art in robotics, must be addressed. These include generality across tasks and novel situations, operating in high-dimensional state spaces, managing uncertainty in sensing and actuation, and tight integration of planning, perception, and control. The scope of this technical committee encompasses research activities that address one or more of the afore mentioned challenges of mobile manipulation.
