Motion Planning

iPlanR provides a robust next-generation benchmarking suite for motion planning algorithms, which can be disseminated to the broader community through euRobotics standardisation activity and promoted to researchers to test and explore their algorithms. For Shadow, it’s an exciting project to understand what tools and techniques are available in getting robots to move in difficult places like reaching, grasping and picking things up. We built some simulation engines specifically for the problems we were looking at within the project. You can read more about what we did and how we achieved it in our iPlanR news post.
