Part of the Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics book series (STAR, volume 57)


Over the last two decades, motion planning [4, 15, 17] has grown from a field that considered basic geometric problems to a field that addresses planning for complex robots with kinematic and dynamic constraints [5]. Applications of motion planning have also expanded to fields such as graphics and computational biology [16].
