Two problems for path planning of a mobile robot are considered. The first problem is to find a shortest-time, collision-free path for the robot in the presence of stationary obstacles in two dimensions. The second problem is to determine a collision-free path (greedy in time) for a mobile robot in an environment of moving obstacles. The environment is modeled in space-time and the collision-free path is found by a variation of the A algorithm.
