What is TFD?

TFD is a temporal planning system that successfully participated in the temporal satisficing track of the 6th International Planning Competition 2008. It is released under the terms of the GPL. A snapshot of the source code is available in the download section.

The algorithms used in TFD are described in the ICAPS 2009 paper [1]. TFD is based on the Fast Downward planning system and uses an adaptation of the context-enhanced additive heuristic [2] to guide the search in the temporal state space induced by the given planning problem.

TFD is mainly developed by Gabriele Röger, Patrick Eyerich, Christian Dornhege, and Robert Mattmüller.
