Creating High-quality Paths for Motion Planning

  title={Creating High-quality Paths for Motion Planning},
  author={Roland Geraerts and Mark H. Overmars},
  journal={I. J. Robotics Res.},
Many algorithms have been proposed that create a path for a robot in an environment with obstacles. Most methods are aimed at finding a solution. However, for many applications, the path must be of a good quality as well. That is, a path should be short and should keep some amount of minimum clearance to the obstacles. Traveling along such a path reduces the chances of collisions due to the difficulty of measuring and controlling the precise position of the robot. This paper reports a new… CONTINUE READING
