AN OPEN OBJECT ORIENTED PATH PLANNING SYSTEM

Eleonora Fantini, Monica Reggiani, Stefano Caselli

Abstract

The paper describes the ongoing development of a motion planning system whose aim is to ease the study and development of new planning strategies as well as the benchmarking and comparison of existing ones. The system is implemented using open technologies and exploiting advanced object-oriented programming concepts. It efficiently integrates multiple planning strategies and collision detection algorithms and provides support for diverse geometric formats.
