Paper Abstract

Space telerobotic systems will perform complex tasks of assembly, disassembly, and repair of space-based equipment. Planning such tasks requires reasoning about the functional, physical, and geometrical properties of the equipment, as well as a representation of the characteristics and capabilities of the manipulators and sensors available for the task. The AND/OR graph [1,2] is a useful approach to representation of feasible assembly/disassembly sequences and provides the basis for search among alternative strategies. In this paper, we describe the use of parts entropy measures as evaluation criteria for search in the AND/OR graph space. This approach leads to candidate task plans which minimize the complexity of intermediate geometrical states.
