L-RPG: Introducing a Lifted Forward-Chaining Planner

E-mail Print PDF

L-RPG is a domain-independent Forward-Chaining planner which - unlike many other planners - does not rely on grounding for guiding its search through the search space. The ultimate aim of this planner is to be more scalable than planners which rely on grounding and solve bigger problem instances which cannot currently be solved by state-of-the-art planners due to memory constraints.
