This video presents an application of artificial intelligence to robotics, in the context of autonomous construction. This work tackles environments where resources are scarce, and therefore in which the robot must plan its actions wisely to avoid making a move that would prevent the completion of the construction. Using AI methods, in this case HTN planning, the robot is able to reason about the situation and to devise a suitable plan. This work demonstrates an integration of perception, navigation, planning, manipulation on a miniature mobile robot.
