BehaviorTree.CPP: Task Planning for Robots and Virtual Agents

Tuesday, October 3 • 16:45 - 17:45

by Davide Faconti

Summary of the talk:

In this presentation, we will introduce BehaviorTree.CPP, a library that is becoming increasingly popular in robotics and used to implement Task Planning.
Behavior Trees are an alternative to Hierarchical Finite State Machines; this approach was originally used in the game industry.

In the first part of this presentation, we will teach what a Behavior Tree are and their advantages, when compared with Finite State Machines; we will also focus on the exclusive features that this library has, when compared to other open source alternatives.

In the second part, we will dive into the technical details of the implementation, in particular how we use design patterns such as Factory, Observer, Safe Type Erasure, Concurrency and even a custom embedded scripting language.
