This paper deals with generation of smooth paths for the navigation of wheeled mobile robots by means of the iterative steering technique. A new motion planning primitive called G3-spline or η-spline is proposed. It is a seventh order polynomial spline that permits the interpolation of an arbitrary sequence of points with associated arbitrary direction… CONTINUE READING
