I am developing GUI c++ program to test path planning algorithms: A*, Dijkstra, ....etc in occupancy grid map.
I found many open source codes , but I need to modify them to design a GUI for testing purposes since I am trying to develop new algorithm.
I noticed that the c++ implementations (which is not for ROS) do not consider the rotation or the orientation for robot when deciding the next cell or movement, they only use x and y values with up, down, left, right movements.
Is it enough to consider x and y only?
What about the rotation when I want to use my code in ROS? How to consider it in this case?
Thanks a lot in advance,
