**Extended Potential Field Method**Adam A. Gonthier MEAM 620 Final Project 3/19/2006**Can use continuous configuration space**Therefore, avoids complexities of discrete planning Field is modeled by potential functions Benefits: Local method Does not require global map No prior knowledge of obstacles required Drawbacks: Get caught in local minima Does not find optimal path Obstacles, robot modeled as points; in real world, they are not points Potential Field Approach**Potential Field Approach**• Goal is modeled as attractive force • Obstacles modeled as repulsive forces • Robot modeled as point • Robot follows gradient of force field, stopping at goal point 2-D Symmetric Gaussian Obstacle Parabolic Goal Well Total Potential Field**Potential Field Algorithm**• Very simple algorithm • Start at initial point • Find path opposite to gradient • Set new point at distance d along path from old point • Repeat until goal point is reached -Prof. John Spletzer Lehigh University**Potential Field Extension**M. Khatib and R. Chatila • In addition to the goal and obstacle potentials, include rotation and task potentials: • Rotation Potential: • A potential function for the robot’s orientation relative to the goal is considered, thus forcing the robot along a ‘straighter’ path • Task Potential: • Filter out obstacles that should not influence the robot’s motion; the obstacles that are not in the robot’s path. • These additions should help create a superior path for the robot: • The rotation field helps avoid overturning from an obstacle • The task field helps avoid unnecessary turning.**Goal**To produce a Matlab implementation of the extended potential fields method for several configurations References Prof. John Spletzer: http://www.cse.lehigh.edu/%7Espletzer/cse397_Fall05/lec014_MotionPlanning.pdf H.
