TLDR
We introduce a new data structure, i.e. the Explicit Corridor Map, which allows creating the shortest path, the path that has the largest amount of clearance and any path in between. Expand

Clearance based path optimization for motion planning
TLDR
We investigate how path clearance can be used by heuristics to improve the quality of paths such that they meet these criteria. Expand

Navigation meshes for realistic multi-layered environments
TLDR
In this paper, we have proposed and implemented an algorithm to compute the medial axis in a multi-layered environment, and our implementation demonstrates the feasibility of the approach. Expand

The corridor map method: a general framework for real‐time high‐quality path planning
TLDR
In many virtual environment applications, paths have to be planned for characters to traverse from a start to a goal position in the virtual world while avoiding obstacles. Expand
