Multi-Contact Task and Motion Planning Guided by Video Demonstration


This work aims at leveraging instructional video to guide the solving of complex multi-contact task-and-motion planning tasks in robotics. Towards this goal, we propose an extension of the well-established Rapidly-Exploring Random Tree (RRT) planner, which simultaneously grows multiple trees around grasp and release states extracted from the guiding video. Our key novelty lies in combining contact states, and 3D object poses extracted from the guiding video with a traditional planning algorithm that allows us to solve tasks with sequential dependencies, for example, if an object needs to be placed at a specific location to be grasped later. To demonstrate the benefits of the proposed video-guided planning approach, we design a new benchmark with three challenging tasks: (i) 3D rearrangement of multiple objects between a table and a shelf, (ii) multi-contact transfer of an object through a tunnel, and (iii) transferring objects using a tray in a similar way a waiter transfers dishes. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our planning algorithm on several robots, including the Franka Emika Panda and the KUKA KMR iiwa.
