I have just finished reading CRAM core and KnowRob, and I have an overview of the system at this moment.

I have read the following information:

However, I still do not understand "designators" in CRAM. How they work? Do you know where I can find more information about them? "Designators" are the module most interesting for me. Thanks.

Thanks for you interest in that package. You just made me create some documentation on the wiki page. It should give you a high-level overview of what designators are and how their interface looks like. For examples on how to use them, have a look at the source code of the package cram_plan_library in the stack cram_highlevel. Packages that implement specialized location resolution mechanisms in that stack are:

  • location_costmap: provides basic functionality to construct costmaps for sampling location designator solutions.

  • semantic_map_costmap: uses Knowrob's semantic map to generate costmaps for generating poses on, in etc. objects in the semantic map, e.g. on the counter top.

  • occupancy_grid_costmap: provides a simple implementation for poses to see and to reach specific poses by using the 2d map provided by navigation for inferring locations the robot can navigate to.

Thanks a lot for your answer. I did not answer before because I was on holidays.
