A predictive field based path planner for mobile robot navigation in indoor areas is described. Predictive fields are used for incorporating moving obstacle information into the navigation function framework. Navigation functions have been limited by geometric restrictions for robot workspaces and cannot easily be used in everyday environments. A methodical description of indoor workspaces such that they follow the constraints of a navigation function based path planner is proposed. Typical use… CONTINUE READING
