A research paper titled “Remodeled A* algorithm for mobile robot agents with obstacle positioning” authored by Jasna S. B., Assistant Professor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, jointly with The Conference was held in Agni College of Technology, Chennai, during 15 – 17 Dec 2016.
From the abstract of the paper: “For planning path of a robot from start to destination, knowledge about the existence of obstacle is necessary. Various algorithms are proposed for avoidance stationary obstacles in unknown environment. This paper deals with a modified A? algorithm for path planning with stationary obstacle. The modified algorithm is based on the concept of nodal weight upgradation. …”
