In this work, it is proposed a new family of potentials for path planning algorithms, one kind to the goal and other to the obstacles. With these new potentials it is possible to parameterize the potential scale length and strength easily, providing better control over the moving object path characteristics. In this way, the path problem can be treated analytically. For example, the minimum distance between the moving object and the obstacles can be calculated as a function of the potential… CONTINUE READING
