We describe a method for multirobot trajectory planning in known, obstacle-rich environments. We demonstrate our approach on a quadrotor swarm navigating in a warehouse setting. Our method consists of following three stages: 1) roadmap generation that generates sparse roadmaps annotated with possible interrobot collisions; 2) discrete planning that finds valid execution schedules in discrete time and space; 3) continuous refinement that creates smooth trajectories. We account for the downwash… CONTINUE READING
