Organisation profile

The Planning Group consists of 5 academic staff, including 2 professors (Maria Fox and Derek Long) and 3 lecturers (Andrew Coles, Amanda Coles and Daniele Magazzeni), as well as a number of EU and EPSRC-funded research fellows and research students.

Planning Research at King's focusses on domain-independent planning. Planning is an active research area within the broader field of Artificial Intelligence, and has strong links with scheduling and optimisation research. The primary problem is the identification of sequences of actions which will achieve specified goals from specified initial conditions. Domain-independent planning is concerned with the fundamental principles of planning, typically concentrating on search techniques, search control methods and the representation and treatment of uncertainty, non-determinism, resources, time and other issues. Planning has been successfully applied to a range of fielded industrial applications and we are actively engaged in applications in energy, aerial surveillance, underwater exploration, space, logistics and home robotics.
