Physics-Based Motion Planning with Tactical Models

This video shows simulated physics-based motion planning examples in several challenging domains, including robot minigolf, robot soccer, and pool.

The underlying planning algorithms are described in my PhD Thesis "Physics-Based Robot Motion Planning in Dynamic Multi-Body Environments" (CMU-CS-10-115), Stefan Zickler, 2010.
