Dynamic Path Optimization for Robotic Agents

An evolutionary algorithm originally designed for optimizing 3-dimensional highway alignments is adapted and tested for military path planning applications. A path planning model is developed for optimizing the path or round trip for a robotic autonomous agent, between given origin and destination points. As new information becomes available during the trip, a dynamic routing algorithm is used to re-optimize the agent¡¦s remaining path. The path revisions produced when new information becomes available during the agent¡¦s travel are analyzed with a simulation model. Some hypothetical numerical examples for rescue operations to locations in hostile territory are presented.
