Publisher: Springer 1998
ISBN/ASIN: 3540762191
ISBN-13: 9783540762195

Description:
Robot motion planning encompasses several different disciplines, most notably robotics, computer science, control theory and mathematics. This volume presents an interdisciplinary account of recent developments in the field. Topics covered include: combining geometric algorithms and control techniques to account for the nonholonomic constraints of most mobile robots; the mathematical machinery necessary for understanding nonholonomic systems; applying optimal techniques to compute optimal paths; feedback control for nonholonomic mobile robots; etc.
