As is well know, collision checking in a generalized sense is a substantial contributor to processor load in a wide range of path-planning applications. These include high-speed terrain following and obstacle avoidance in low-flying aircraft, path planning on local scales for autonomous vehicles, both undersea and on land, and a number of areas in robotic motion planning, not only for mobile robot navigation but also for such problems as arm motion in cluttered environments. Some algorithms… CONTINUE READING
