The paper A Feedforward Control Approach to the Local Navigation Problem for Autonomous Vehicles by Alonzo Kelly uses the term actuation space.
Feedforward solves the historically significant clothoid generation problem trivially. C space combinatoric explosion is solved by planning in actuation space.
I have attempted to search for this term via Google. However, I can only find applications of actuation spaces—not what an actual space actually is.
A definition or source for further investigation would be greatly appreciated.
