Mixed Reality Path Planning for Omni Robots

Robotic Gizmos

In the past few years, we have covered plenty of decent algorithms for robot path planning in real-environments. Chenguang Yang’s video shows a mixed reality based path planning for omnidirectional mobile robots.

As the researchers explain:
an interactive interface is presented in the mixed reality device HoloLens. The interface can display the map, path, control command, and other information related to the mobile robot, and it can add virtual objects to the real map to realize a real-time interaction between the mobile robot and the virtual objects. Then, the original path planning algorithm, vector field histogram* (VFH*), is modified in the aspects of the threshold, candidate direction selection, and cost function, to make it more suitable for the scene with virtual objects, reduce the number of calculations required, and improve the security.
