ompl::control::SimpleDirectedControlSampler Class Reference

Implementation of a simple directed control sampler. This is a basic implementation that does not actually take direction into account and builds upon ControlSampler. Instead, a set of k random controls are sampled, and the control that gets the system closest to the target state is returned. More...

Public Member Functions

 SimpleDirectedControlSampler (const SpaceInformation *si, unsigned int k=1)
 Constructor takes the state space to construct samples for as argument Optionally, a k value can be given to indicate the number of controls to try when directing a system toward a specific state. Default value is 1.
 
unsigned int getNumControlSamples () const
 Retrieve the number of controls to generate when finding the best control.
 
void setNumControlSamples (unsigned int numSamples)
 Set the number of controls to generate when finding the best control.
 
unsigned int sampleTo (Control *control, const base::State *source, base::State *dest) override
 Sample a control given that it will be applied to state state and the intention is to reach state dest. This is useful for some algorithms that have a notion of direction in their exploration (e.g., cRRT). Furthermore, return the duration for which this control should be applied. The state dest is modified to match the state reached with the computed control and duration. The motion is checked for validity.
 
unsigned int sampleTo (Control *control, const Control *previous, const base::State *source, base::State *dest) override
 Sample a control given that it will be applied to state state and the intention is to reach state dest. Also take into account the fact that the previously applied control is previous. This is useful for some algorithms that have a notion of direction in their exploration (e.g., cRRT). Furthermore, return the duration for which this control should be applied. The state dest is modified to match the state reached with the computed control and duration. The motion is checked for validity.

Detailed Description

Implementation of a simple directed control sampler. This is a basic implementation that does not actually take direction into account and builds upon ControlSampler. Instead, a set of k random controls are sampled, and the control that gets the system closest to the target state is returned.
