AI Search Methods for Mobile Robots, 3 Credits

The promise of intelligent robot systems is that they can accomplish more tasks, more efficiently than a single-purpose industrial robotic solution. Intelligent robots act competently because they can plan, sequence and enact the actions that are appropriate in the context in which they find themselves. In order to achieve this capability, intelligent robots use Artificial Intelligence (AI) Search Methods. These are general-purpose algorithms for solving combinatorial problems, in other words, they constitute a robot's "reasoning engine". This course introduces students to the most important types of AI search methods. These are then instantiated in three industrially-relevant application contexts, namely, resource scheduling, motion planning, and multi-robot coordination.

The course includes three compulsory meetings (half day) at Örebro University.

The course is intended for working professionals.
