I would like to implement pure pursuit waypoints navigation. we know that,

look ahead distance=look ahead gain*vehicle forward velocity

How can I calculate look ahead velocity gain/look ahead gain?

How can I calculate velocity profile for each waypoints?

  • $\begingroup$ I am familiar with pure pursuit, but I don't believe I have seen your equation for look ahead distance before. Can you post a link to a paper describing it? $\endgroup$ – Ben Oct 4 '16 at 23:13

My understanding of the pure pursuit algorithm is that the look ahead distance is a fixed parameter. In this original paper [1], there is a short discussion on choosing the look ahead distance. Look ahead distance selection

I believe you should tune this to the typical speeds of your robot and the types of paths you will be following (i.e. very curvy or straight).
