Quantitative Path-Planning from Qualitative Language Instructions / 4044
Daqing Yi

Understanding qualitative instructions may enable robots to work with untrained human users. We propose a framework supporting a robot that plans a path using information specified by a human using natural language; the path may contain multiple criteria and topological requirements. The framework supports the conversion from a qualitative sentence to a quantitative path for robotic navigation.
