    • Analysis of probabilistic roadmap methods for motion planning and applications to polygon manipulation 

      Ladd, Andrew M. (2003)
      Motion planning deals with the problem of finding trajectory between two configurations in some space under some constraints. The science of motion planning deals with solving this problem efficiently in different spaces ...
    • Motion Planning for Knot Untangling 

      Ladd, Andrew M.; Kavraki, Lydia E. (2004-01-01)
      When given a very tangled but unknotted circular piece of string it is usually quite easy to move it around and tug on parts of it until it untangles. However, solving this problem by computer, either exactly or heuristically, ...
    • Motion planning for physical simulation 

      Ladd, Andrew M. (2007)
      Motion planning research has been successful in developing planning algorithms which are effective for solving problems with complicated geometric and kinematic constraints. Various applications in robotics and in other ...
    • Robotics-Based Location Sensing based on Wireless Ethernet 

      Bekris, Kostas E.; Kavraki, Lydia E.; Ladd, Andrew M.; Marceau, Guillaume; Rudys, Algis; Wallach, Dan S. (2002-04-25)
      A key subproblem in the construction of location-aware systems is the determination of the position of a mobile device. This paper describes the design, implementation and analysis of a system for determining position from ...
