Public Member Functions

 BiEST (const base::SpaceInformationPtr &si)
 Constructor.
 
base::PlannerStatus solve (const base::PlannerTerminationCondition &ptc) override
 Function that can solve the motion planning problem. This function can be called multiple times on the same problem, without calling clear() in between. This allows the planner to continue work for more time on an unsolved problem, for example. If this option is used, it is assumed the problem definition is not changed (unpredictable results otherwise). The only change in the problem definition that is accounted for is the addition of starting or goal states (but not changing previously added start/goal states). The function terminates if the call to ptc returns true.
 
void clear () override
 Clear all internal datastructures. Planner settings are not affected. Subsequent calls to solve() will ignore all previous work.
 
void setRange (double distance)
 Set the range the planner is supposed to use. More...
 
double getRange () const
 Get the range the planner is using.
 
void setup () override
 Perform extra configuration steps, if needed. This call will also issue a call to ompl::base::SpaceInformation::setup() if needed. This must be called before solving.
 
void getPlannerData (base::PlannerData &data) const override
 Get information about the current run of the motion planner. Repeated calls to this function will update data (only additions are made). This is useful to see what changed in the exploration datastructure, between calls to solve(), for example (without calling clear() in between).

const SpaceInformationPtrgetSpaceInformation () const
 Get the space information this planner is using.
 
const ProblemDefinitionPtrgetProblemDefinition () const
 Get the problem definition the planner is trying to solve.
 
const PlannerInputStatesgetPlannerInputStates () const
 Get the planner input states.
 
virtual void setProblemDefinition (const ProblemDefinitionPtr &pdef)
 Set the problem definition for the planner. The problem needs to be set before calling solve(). Note: If this problem definition replaces a previous one, it may also be necessary to call clear().
 
PlannerStatus solve (const PlannerTerminationConditionFn &ptc, double checkInterval)
 Same as above except the termination condition is only evaluated at a specified interval.
 
PlannerStatus solve (double solveTime)
 Same as above except the termination condition is solely a time limit: the number of seconds the algorithm is allowed to spend planning.
 
const std::string & getName () const
 Get the name of the planner.
 
void setName (const std::string &name)
 Set the name of the planner.
 
const PlannerSpecsgetSpecs () const
 Return the specifications (capabilities of this planner)
 
virtual void checkValidity ()
 Check to see if the planner is in a working state (setup has been called, a goal was set, the input states seem to be in order). In case of error, this function throws an exception.
 
bool isSetup () const
 Check if setup() was called for this planner.
 
ParamSetparams ()
 Get the parameters for this planner.
 
const ParamSetparams () const
 Get the parameters for this planner.
 
const PlannerProgressPropertiesgetPlannerProgressProperties () const
 Retrieve a planner's planner progress property map.
 
virtual void printProperties (std::ostream &out) const
 Print properties of the motion planner.
 
virtual void printSettings (std::ostream &out) const
 Print information about the motion planner's settings.
 

Protected Member Functions

double distanceFunction (const Motion *a, const Motion *b) const
 Compute distance between motions (actually distance between contained states)
 
void freeMemory ()
 Free the memory allocated by this planner.
 
void addMotion (Motion *motion, std::vector< Motion *> &motions, PDF< Motion *> &pdf, const std::shared_ptr< NearestNeighbors< Motion *>> &nn, const std::vector< Motion *> &neighbors)
 Add a motion to the exploration tree.

template<typename T , typename PlannerType , typename SetterType , typename GetterType >

 This function declares a parameter for this planner instance, and specifies the setter and getter functions.
 
template<typename T , typename PlannerType , typename SetterType >
void declareParam (const std::string &name, const PlannerType &planner, const SetterType &setter, const std::string &rangeSuggestion="")
 This function declares a parameter for this planner instance, and specifies the setter function.

 Add a planner progress property called progressPropertyName with a property querying function prop to this planner's progress property map.

Detailed Description

Bi-directional Expansive Space Trees.

Short description
EST is a tree-based motion planner that attempts to detect the less explored area of the space by measuring the density of the explored space, biasing exploration toward parts of the space with lowest density.

◆ setRange()

void ompl::geometric::BiEST::setRange ( double  distance)
inline

Set the range the planner is supposed to use.

This parameter greatly influences the runtime of the algorithm. It represents the maximum length of a motion to be added in the tree of motions.
