We consider the problem of finding an optimal manoeuvre that moves a car-like vehicle between two configurations in minimum time. We propose a two phase algorithm in which a path that joins the two points is first found by solving a geometric optimisation problem, and then the optimal manoeuvre is identified considering the system dynamics and its constraints. We make the assumption that the path is composed of a sequence of clothoids. This choice is justified by theoretical arguments… CONTINUE READING
