Motion Planning with MATLAB

The days when a vehicle or machine required a driver or physical controller are gone—today’s self-driving cars are smart enough to change lanes, allow pedestrians to pass, or even parallel park themselves.

Motion planning is one of the three components that make systems like self-driving cars, robot manipulators, UGVs, and UAVs autonomous. The other two are perception and control.
