Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Computer vision
  • Robot

James J. Kuffner mainly investigates Motion planning, Robot, Artificial intelligence, Computer vision and Humanoid robot. His Motion planning study incorporates themes from Distributed computing, Mathematical optimization and Robot control, Mobile robot. The concepts of his Mathematical optimization study are interwoven with issues in Random tree and Kinodynamic planning.

His Robot study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Theoretical computer science and Human–computer interaction. When carried out as part of a general Artificial intelligence research project, his work on Robot kinematics, Motion and Grasp planning is frequently linked to work in Domain, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research in Computer vision intersects with topics in Inverse kinematics and Trajectory.

His most cited work include:

  • Randomized kinodynamic planning (2077 citations)
