Summary: September16, 2008
To whom it may concern,
Over the course of the next 3 months we would like to research, develop, and analyse
the effectiveness of some dynamic path planning algorithms. Robotic path planning needs to
be dynamic in nature in order to account for moving obstacles and targets. A large challenge
in achieving fully functional dynamic path planning is accounting for real time optimization of
solutions. Specifically we would like to develop two population based algorithms that achieve
successful dynamic path planning in real time, and to develop a software simulation
environment in which to test and analyse these algorithms to compare their effectiveness.
Thank you for you time,
As technology moves ever forward, us humans are becoming more and more comfortable
and dependant on high-tech devices such as personal computers, cell phones, cars,
aircrafts, etc. Not only are these devices becoming essential parts of our lives, but at the
same time the technology in these devices is evolving to new levels. Cars are using more
computer assistance, cell phones are growing more powerful and complex, and personal
computers are able to handle tasks that before only super computers could tackle.
