Convergent Network Approximation for the Continuous Euclidean Length Constrained Minimum Cost Path Problem

In many path planning situations we would like to find a path of constrained Euclidean length in 2D that minimises a line integral. We call this the Continuous Length-Constrained Minimum Cost Path Problem (C-LCMCPP). Generally, this will be a non-convex optimization problem, for which continuous approaches only ensure locally optimal solutions. However, network discretisations yield … Read more
