Public Member Functions

 TRRT (const base::SpaceInformationPtr &si)
 Constructor.
 
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).
 
base::PlannerStatus solve (const base::PlannerTerminationCondition &plannerTerminationCondition) 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 setGoalBias (double goalBias)
 Set the goal bias. More...
 
double getGoalBias () const
 Get the goal bias the planner is using.
 
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 setTempChangeFactor (double factor)
 Set the factor by which the temperature is increased after a failed transition test. This value should be in the range (0, 1], typically close to zero (default is 0.1). This value is an exponential (e^factor) that is multiplied with the current temperature.
 
double getTempChangeFactor () const
 Get the factor by which the temperature rises based on current acceptance/rejection rate.
 
void setCostThreshold (double maxCost)
 Set the cost threshold (default is infinity). Any motion cost that is not better than this cost (according to the optimization objective) will not be expanded by the planner.
 
double getCostThreshold () const
 Get the cost threshold (default is infinity). Any motion cost that is not better than this cost (according to the optimization objective) will not be expanded by the planner.
 
void setInitTemperature (double initTemperature)
 Set the initial temperature at the beginning of the algorithm. Should be high to allow for initial exploration.
 
double getInitTemperature () const
 Get the temperature at the start of planning.
 
void setFrontierThreshold (double frontier_threshold)
 Set the distance between a new state and the nearest neighbor that qualifies that state as being a frontier.
 
double getFrontierThreshold () const
 Get the distance between a new state and the nearest neighbor that qualifies that state as being a frontier.
 
void setFrontierNodeRatio (double frontierNodeRatio)
 Set the ratio between adding nonfrontier nodes to frontier nodes, for example .1 is 1/10 or one nonfrontier node for every 10 frontier nodes added.
 
double getFrontierNodeRatio () const
 Get the ratio between adding nonfrontier nodes to frontier nodes, for example .1 is 1/10 or one nonfrontier node for every 10 frontier nodes added.
 
template<template< typename T > class NN>
void setNearestNeighbors ()
 Set a different nearest neighbors datastructure.
 
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.

const PlannerInputStatesgetPlannerInputStates () const
 Get the planner input states.
 
virtual void setProblemDefinition (const ProblemDefinitionPtr &pdef)

Detailed Description

Transition-based Rapidly-exploring Random Trees.

Short description
T-RRT is an RRT variant and tree-based motion planner that takes into consideration state costs to compute low-cost paths that follow valleys and saddle points of the configuration-space costmap. It uses transition tests from stochastic optimization methods to accept or reject new potential states.
Example usage
Please see Dave Coleman's example to see how TRRT can be used.

Member Function Documentation

◆ setGoalBias()

void ompl::geometric::TRRT::setGoalBias ( double  goalBias)
inline

Set the goal bias.

In the process of randomly selecting states in the state space to attempt to go towards, the algorithm may in fact choose the actual goal state, if it knows it, with some probability. This probability is a real number between 0.0 and 1.0; its value should usually be around 0.05 and should not be too large. It is probably a good idea to use the default value.

Definition at line 106 of file TRRT.h.

◆ setRange()

void ompl::geometric::TRRT::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.

Definition at line 122 of file TRRT.h.

◆ transitionTest()

bool ompl::geometric::TRRT::transitionTest ( const base::Cost motionCost)
protected

Filter irrelevant configuration regarding the search of low-cost paths before inserting into tree.

Parameters
motionCost- cost of the motion to be evaluated
