The days when a vehicle or machine required a driver or physical controller are gone—today’s self-driving cars are smart enough to change lanes, allow pedestrians to pass, or even parallel park themselves.
Motion planning is one of the three components that make systems like self-driving cars, robot manipulators, UGVs, and UAVs autonomous. The other two are perception and control.
- What motion planning is and how it works
- Two common types of motion planning
- A four-step motion planning workflow
