Motion planning is one of key challenges in robotics today. When determining how a robot should perform a task, environmental and safety factors should be considered. For example, obstacles in the environment should be avoided, while also taking into account sensor measurement uncertainty and possible energy restrictions. Currently, there are many different ways of approaching this problem, ranging from classical optimization to deep learning. Filip developed motion planning algorithms with a focus on manipulators. He worked as a member of STARS and with the LAMoR group at the University of Zagreb.
