In domain of robotics, many applications need to plan a path that passes over all points of an area or volume of interest while avoiding obstacles. Think about robots in domains as vacuum cleaning, painting, harbor cleaning, demining, lawn mowing, harvesting, tank cleaning and inspection. As soon as a path is planned, next challenge is to control this path or trajectory. As neither ROS, nor ROS Industrial are currently providing needed packages incorporating this (Complete) Coverage Path Planning or trajectory tracking functionality, this FTP proposes to develop, verify and validate these packages, and enhance ROS Industrial collection for real-life applications.
