Public Member Functions

 SPARSdb (const base::SpaceInformationPtr &si)
 Constructor.
 
 ~SPARSdb () override
 Destructor.
 
void setProblemDefinition (const base::ProblemDefinitionPtr &pdef) override
 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().
 
void setStretchFactor (double t)
 Sets the stretch factor.
 
void setSparseDeltaFraction (double D)
 Sets vertex visibility range as a fraction of max. extent.
 
void setDenseDeltaFraction (double d)

bool checkStartGoalConnection (ompl::geometric::PathGeometric &solutionPath)
 
bool addStateToRoadmap (const base::PlannerTerminationCondition &ptc, base::State *newState)
 
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. Start and goal states from the currently specified ProblemDefinition are cached. This means that between calls to solve(), input states are only added, not removed. When using PRM as a multi-query planner, the input states should be however cleared, without clearing the roadmap itself. This can be done using the clearQuery() function.
 
void clearQuery ()
 Clear the query previously loaded from the ProblemDefinition. Subsequent calls to solve() will reuse the previously computed roadmap, but will clear the set of input states constructed by the previous call to solve(). This enables multi-query functionality for PRM.
 
void clear () override
 Clear all internal datastructures. Planner settings are not affected. Subsequent calls to solve() will ignore all previous work.
 
template<template< typename T > class NN>
void setNearestNeighbors ()

bool getSimilarPaths (int nearestK, const base::State *start, const base::State *goal, CandidateSolution &candidateSolution, const base::PlannerTerminationCondition &ptc)
 Search the roadmap for the best path close to the given start and goal states that is valid. More...
 
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.

 Get the number of vertices in the sparse roadmap.

 Convert astar results to correctly ordered path. More...
 
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).
 
void setPlannerData (const base::PlannerData &data)
 Set the sparse graph from file. More...
 
bool reachedFailureLimit () const
 Returns whether we have reached the iteration failures limit, maxFailures_.
 
void printDebug (std::ostream &out=std::cout) const
 Print debug information about planner.
 
void clearEdgeCollisionStates ()

Detailed Description

SPArse Roadmap Spanner Version 2.0

Short description
SPARSdb is a variant of the SPARS algorithm which removes the dependency on having the dense graph, D. It works through similar mechanics, but uses a different approach to identifying interfaces and computing shortest paths through said interfaces.

This version has been modified for use with Thunder

Member Typedef Documentation

◆ EdgeProperties

using ompl::geometric::SPARSdb::EdgeProperties = boost::property<boost::edge_weight_t, double, boost::property<edge_collision_state_t, int> >

Wrapper for the double assigned to an edge as its weight property.

Definition at line 287 of file SPARSdb.h.

◆ Graph

using ompl::geometric::SPARSdb::Graph = boost::adjacency_list<boost::vecS, boost::vecS, boost::undirectedS, VertexProperties, EdgeProperties>

The underlying boost graph type (undirected weighted-edge adjacency list with above properties).

Definition at line 292 of file SPARSdb.h.

◆ VertexProperties

using ompl::geometric::SPARSdb::VertexProperties = boost::property< vertex_state_t, base::State *, boost::property< boost::vertex_predecessor_t, VertexIndexType, boost::property<boost::vertex_rank_t, VertexIndexType, boost::property<vertex_color_t, GuardType, boost::property<vertex_interface_data_t, InterfaceHashStruct> >> >>

The underlying roadmap graph.

Any BGL graph representation could be used here. Because we
expect the roadmap to be sparse (m<n^2), an adjacency_list is more appropriate than an adjacency_matrix. Edges are undirected.

Properties of vertices*

Note: If boost::vecS is not used for vertex storage, then there must also be a boost:vertex_index_t property manually added.

Properties of edges*

  • edge_weight_t - cost/distance between two vertices
  • edge_collision_state_t - used for lazy collision checking, determines if an edge has been checked already for collision. 0 = not checked/unknown, 1 = in collision, 2 = freeWrapper for the vertex's multiple as its property.
