(PRM) local path free space milestone mg mb
[Kavraki, Svetska, Latombe,Overmars, 95] The Principles of PRM Planning Checking sampled configurations and connections between samples for collision can be done efficiently. A relatively small number of milestones and local paths are sufficient to capture the connectivity of
the free space. The Learning Phase Construct a probabilistic roadmap The Query Phase
Find a path from the start and goal configurations to two nodes of the roadmap Create random configurations Update Neighboring Nodes Edges End of Construction Step
Expansion Step End of Expansion Step The Query Phase Need to find a path between an arbitrary start and goal configuration, using the roadmap
constructed in the learning phase. Select start and goal Start Goal Connect Start and Goal to Roadmap Start
Goal Find the Path from Start to Goal Start Goal What if we fail?
Maybe the roadmap was not adequate. Could spend more time in the Learning Phase Could do another Learning Phase and reuse R constructed in the first Learning Phase.
Example Results This is a fixed-based articulated robot with 7 revolute degrees of freedom. Each configuration is tested with a set of
30 goals with different learning times. Results With expansion Without expansion
Issues Why random sampling? Smart sampling strategies Final path smoothing Issues: Connectivity Bad Good
Disadvantages Spends a lot of time planning paths that will never get used
Heavily reliant on fast collision checking An attempt to solve these is made with Lazy PRMs Tries to minimize collision checks Tries to reuse information gathered by queries
