MATLAB Toolbox of RRT, RRT* and RRT*FN algorithms

What is RRT, RRT* and RRT*FN?

RRT (Rapidly-Exploring Random Tree) is a sampling-based algorithm for solving path planning problem. RRT provides feasible solution if time of RRT tends to infinity. RRT* is a probabilistic algorithm for solving motion planning problem, which is similar to RRT but unlike RRT it provides higher rate of convergence to the feasible solution and it is probabilistically optimal. RRT*FN is a new variant of RRT*, which limits the number of nodes in the tree and hence decreases the memory needed for storing the tree.

How to use

The original package contains 3 files containing algorithm

  • rrt.m
  • rrt_star.m
  • rrt_star_fn.m

and 2 files containing classes that enable algorithm to solve problems for simple 2D mobile robot model and nDOF Redundant Manipulator
- FNSimple2D.m
-FNRedundantManipulator.m
One can add other additional models implementing all methods mentioned in rrt.m, rrt_star.m, rrt_star_fn.m
