Hybrid Strategy of Motion Planning with Kinematic Optimization for Autonomous Driving

Autonomous driving has revolutionized the conventional driving. In this paper, the authors present a motion planner for autonomous driving. Two main issues of motion planning are addressed in the paper: kinematical feasibility and consistence of motion control. The kinematical feasibility is achieved by a prediction engine, which generates a reference path for vehicle to follow based on vehicle kinematic model. The core of the engine is based on a differential dynamic programming (DDP) optimization. The consistence of motion control is solved by a hybrid motion planning strategy, which also considers the previous reference path in the motion planning. The proposed method is verified on the authors' autonomous vehicle platform driving on a public road and performing vehicle avoidance.
