Link to online seminars: Zoom


Multi-agent Path Finding (MAPF) deals with the problem of finding collision-free paths for a set of agents/robots moving in a shared environment. Applications may be found in various areas, including transportation robots in warehouses, taxiing at airports, or automated traffic junctions. The talk will present abstract models of the problem, survey existing solving approaches, and discuss some practical issues.
