The research objective is to develop a distributed model-based Qualitative State Plan executive that is robust in a stochastic environment. As the first step towards this goal, a robust kinodynamic path planner called Bi-stage Robust Motion Planning algorithm is developed. The algorithm optimizes the risk allocation in the upper-stage while optimizing the nominal path in the lower-stage. The simulation result shows significant improvement in optimality and computation time compared to prior arts.
