Path Planning on Costmaps
a half-day workshop for ICRA 2008

Path planning on costmaps for outdoor mobile robots is different from
traditional motion planning in a number of ways — there is a continuum
of terrain cost instead of discrete obstacles, these terrain costs
change over the course of a run, the environment is only
partially-known, and the path planner must run repeatedly and in
real-time.

Techniques from the traditional motion planning community have begun
to be adopted for path planning on costmaps, for example:
sampling-based methods, nonholonomic path planning, and incorporation
of vehicle dynamics.

This half-day workshop aims to bring together researchers working in
traditional path planning and in path planning for field robotic
systems in order to foster work in this area.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15, 2008
