      To ensure a robot capable of robust task execution in unstructured environments, task planners need to have a high-level understanding of the nature of the world, reasoning for deliberate actions, and reacting to environment changes. Proposed is a practical task planning approach that seamlessly integrating deeper domain knowledge, real time perception and symbolic planning for robot operation. A higher degree of autonomy under unstructured environment will be endowed to the robot with the proposed approach.
