Robotic Path-planning for Normal Human Beings and TurtleBots
As robotic technology improves, expands, and becomes more widely-used, so does human-robot interaction. Unfortunately most robots require large amounts of training or experience to operate correctly. More intuitive and easy-to-learn ways of controlling and interacting with robots are needed. We are creating a method for a user to effortlessly influence a robot’s behavior based on different criteria. I am working to integrate a new control interface and multi-objective path-planning algorithm onto a simple ground robot, a TurtleBot, in order to allow users to easily accomplish a variety of objectives.
