Abstract:       We aim at building a joint space trajectory generation
                system.  Connected to a fixed manipulator with sensory
                feedback, neural networks are expected to move the
                end-effector from any start to any goal configuration
                without colliding with obstacles.  The output of our
                system is a series of consecutive configurations
                yielding a joint-space trajectory.  Sensory
                information serves as the only source of knowledge
                about the manipulator's kinematics and the trajectory
                features. This knowledge will gradually be
                incorporated into the trajectory retrieval system.
Keywords:       trajectory generation and storage, neural control,
                manipulator, modeling.
