APSAdaptive Problem Solving for Large Scale Scheduling and Resource Allocation Problems task involves the development of Machine Learning Methods to automatically find effective domain-specific scheduler control strategies. It is applied to the domains of spacecraft commanding and to Deep Space Network scheduling problems.
CLEaRClosed Loop Execution and Recovery is an integrated planning and execution framework for autonomous control of robotic entities. The CLEaR system currently utilizes CASPER and TDL, and focuses on on the use of both near-term reactive behavior and long-term deliberative decision making.
Benchmark Problem DomainsThe benchmark problem domains were developed and released in response to the disconnect between the research and application communities in planning and scheduling. The two actual space domains, DATA-CHASER and CX-1, developed at Colorado Space Grant, contain multiple levels of difficulty and simulators corresponding to these levels, in the hopes the the planning and scheduling community will direct research towards more real-world problems.
