Positioning mobile manipulators to perform constrained linear trajectories
Abstract— For mobile manipulators envisioned in home environments a kitchen scenario provides a challenging testbed for numerous skills. Diverse manipulation actions are required, e.g. simple pick and place for moving objects and constrained motions for opening doors and drawers. The robot kinematics and link limits however are restrictive. Therefore especially a constrained trajectory will not be executable from arbitrary placements of the mobile manipulator. A two stage approach is presented to position a mobile manipulator to execute constrained linear trajectories as needed for opening drawers. In a first stage, a representation of a robot arm’s reachable workspace is computed. Pattern recognition techniques are used to find regions in the workspace representation where these trajectories are possible. A set of trajectories results. In the second stage mobile manipulator placements are computed and the corresponding trajectories are checked for collisions. Compared to a brute...
