This proposal addresses robotic manipulation planning for manufacturing tasks. We will build algorithms to plan operations that require forceful collaboration between a team of robots; e.g. a drilling operation, where some robots grasp and hold a workpiece stable, while another applies force with a driller. The planner will decide on the robot actions and the grasping locations on the workpiece to perform such operations. We will build a robotic system, which starts from a set of parts (e.g. planks of wood), and plans an action sequence (e.g. cutting, then drilling, then fastening) to build a product (e.g. a wooden chair).
