Abstract: How can robots do the most work with the fewest resources? Computer scientists are often concerned about bounds on the minimum computational time or memory required to solve a problem. In robotics, we would like to also minimize device complexity, the time required for action, and error. This talk explores the minimum capabilities required to solve a few problems in robot motion planning, manipulation of cloth or string, and assembly.
