The work on terrain coverage algorithms has been shown to be applicable to many real-world problems. Examples range from battlefield tactics to planetary exploration and from spell-checking to vacuuming. The general idea behind terrain coverage lies on exploring a defined area/environment as much as possible. Previous works have demonstrated the effectiveness of algorithms in various scenarios such as unobstructed and obstructed terrains, and terrains that contain special, hard-to-find… CONTINUE READING
