Reactive Navigation for Non-Holonomic Robots using the Ego-Kinematic Space

  title={Reactive Navigation for Non-Holonomic Robots using the Ego-Kinematic Space},
  author={Javier Minguez and Luis Montano and Jos{\'e} Santos-Victor},
We address the problem of applying reactive navigation methods to non-holonomic robots. Rather than embedding the motion constraints when designing a navigation method, we propose to introduce the robot’s kinematic constraints directly in the spatial representation. In this space the Ego-Kinematic Space the robot moves as a “free-flying object”. Hence, standard reactive navigation methods applied to this space will automatically take into account the robot’s kinematic constraints, without… CONTINUE READING
