Dynamics of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are described by a nonlinear nonholonomic model with two inputs: the rear axle torque and the steering angle torque. This model uses integrated longitudinal and lateral behavior. The first part of this paper is concerned with motion generation, taking into account kinodynamics and motor's constraints. Usual(More)
This paper presents missile guidance as a complex robotic problem: a hybrid non-linear system moving in a heterogeneous environment. The proposed solution to this problem combines a sampling-based path planner, Dubins' curves and a locally-optimal guidance law. This algorithm aims to find feasible trajectories that anticipate future flight conditions,(More)
I INTRODUCTION Minimum time point to point motion planning has been solved considering kinematical constraints on speed and acceleration [3]. These bounds are approximations and imply the full capability of the robot cannot be utilized. Efficiency can be increased by considering the characteristics of the robot dynamics. [l] has presented a trajectory(More)
The objective of this paper is to generate a desired flight path to be followed by an autonomous airship. The space is supposed without obstacles. As there is six degrees of freedom and only three inputs for the LSC airship in a low velocity flight, three equality constraints appear due to the under-actuation. When the roll φ and pitch θangles(More)
In this paper, we consider the structure inspection problem using a miniature unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The influence of the wind on the UAV behavior and onboard energy limitations are important parameters that must be taken into account in the structure inspection problem. To tackle these problems, we derive three methods to inspect a structure.(More)
