  journal={The 23rd IEEE Conference on Decision and Control},
This paper describes one approach to the problem of path planning for an autonomous vehicle (an automaton) moving in two-dimensional space filled with obstacles. The approach is based on continuous processing of incoming local information about the environment. A continuous computational model for the environment and for the vehicle operation is presented. Information about the environment (the scene) is assumed to be incomplete except that at any moment the vehicle knows the coordinates of its… CONTINUE READING
