The main goal of the project is to develop new planning techniques that enable long-term planning of unmanned systems with the ability to plan hierarchically, re-plan short term activities on the fly and propose long term modifications of plans to a supervisor. We would want to explore constraints around power, data, position accuracy requirements, degraded performance and re-planning.
