Abstract

General-purpose robots present the opportunity to be programmed for a specific purpose em after deployment. This requires tools for end-users to quickly and intuitively program robots to perform useful tasks in new environments. In this paper, we present a flow-based visual programming language (VPL) for mobile manipulation tasks, demonstrate the generalizability of tasks programmed in this VPL, and present a preliminary user study of a development tool for this VPL.
