    Thesis Proposal: Real-time Trajectory Planning for Mobile Robot Navigation in Cluttered Environments

    Zoom Meeting Details:

    Collision-free mobile robot navigation in cluttered environments is a central problem for many robotics applications. In such environments, obstacles can be static, i.e. stationary, or dynamic, i.e. moving. Dynamic obstacles can be cooperative or non-cooperative. Non-cooperative dynamic obstacles can be interactive, i.e. changing their behavior according to the behavior of other entities, or not interactive. Navigation in such environments with obstacles with different behavior modalities require real-time decision making capabilities.

    In this thesis proposal, we investigate the safety requirements against these different types of objects, and develop a real-time trajectory planning algorithm satisfying the safety requirements. We investigate the context in which the planner should be used and delve into its interaction with other system components, including reactive controllers and global trajectory planners
