High-speed flight in an ergodic forest

  title={High-speed flight in an ergodic forest},
  author={Sertac Karaman and Emilio Frazzoli},
  journal={2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation},
Inspired by birds flying through cluttered environments such as dense forests, this paper studies the theoretical foundations of high-speed motion through a randomly-generated obstacle field. Assuming that the locations and the sizes of the trees are determined by an ergodic point process, and under mild technical conditions on the dynamics of the bird, it is shown that the existence of an infinite collision-free trajectory through the forest exhibits a phase transition. In other words, if the… CONTINUE READING
