# Questions tagged [motion-planning]

Motion planning (also known as the navigation problem or the piano mover's problem) is a term used in robotics for the process of breaking down a desired movement task into discrete motions that satisfy movement constraints and possibly optimize some aspect of the movement.

### What are cases where bug1 algorithm would be bug2?

I have been reading Principles of Robot Motion Theory, Algorithms and Implementations by Choset et al and I can't seem to understand how bug1 would beat bug2. It is harder for me to see given that ...

### Motion profile and Motion control scheme, how do they interact?

I'm studying motion control and I start with the simplest case, I have to go from A to B in a straight line using a trapezoidal motion profile. I understand that in a real case, due to the fact that ...

### Difference between Single-Query and Multiple Query Algorithms?

I am spending a lot of time in understanding these two concepts, because in several papers that I read, they define them differently, and I do not know exactly what is the meaning of the two different ...

### How to estimate proper heading angle

I obtain the heading or yaw angle from a source which I am not allowed to modify, but when the angle goes more than +180 or -180, it interchanges either from 180 to -180 or the other way around. Any ...

### What is the difference between planning for kinematic car, dynamic car, blimp, and quadrotor? [closed]

I am working with a sampling based planning library. When I looked into the implementation, I found for kinematic car a SE2 state space(x, y, yaw), for dynamic car a SE2 compound state space (space ...

### From an end-effector trajectory to joints movements

let's assume that our robot consists of 3 degree-of-freedoms. In order to move the end-effector of this robot along a straight line, these 3 joints have moved as below: Now, if the desired end-...

### Motion of a mobile platform inaccurate than industrial robot arm

It is known that with a 7DoF industrial you can achieve an accuracy of ~2mm. However, the motion with a mobile platform is known to be more inaccurate and expensive. I can follow why the motion is ...
