Code for AM-Traj is now available on GitHub

AM-Traj is a C++11 header-only library for generating large-scale piecewise polynomial trajectories for aggressive autonomous flights, with highlights on its superior computational efficiency and simultaneous spatial-temporal optimality. Besides, an extremely fast feasibility checker is designed for various kinds of constraints. All components in this framework leverage the algebraic convenience of the polynomial trajectory optimization problem, thus our method is capable of computing a spatial-temporal optimal trajectory with 60 pieces within 5ms, i.e., 150Hz at least. You just need to include “am_traj.hpp” and “root_finder.hpp” in your code. Please use the up-to-date master branch which may have a better performance than the one in our paper.

A paper is conditionally accpeted by IEEE T-RO

F. Gao, L. Wang, B. Zhou, L. Han, J. Pan and S. Shen’s work on ‘Teach-Repeat-Replan: A Complete and Robust System for Aggressive Flight in Complex Environments’ is conditionally accepted by IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO). Introduction Teach-Repeat-Replan is a complete and robust system enables Autonomous Drone Race. It contains all components for UAV aggressive flight in complex environments. It is built upon the classical robotics teach-and-repeat framework, which is widely adopted in infrastructure inspection, aerial transportation, and search-and-rescue. Our system can capture users’ intention of a flight mission, convert an arbitrarily jerky teaching trajectory to a guaranteed smooth and safe repeating trajectory, and generate safe local re-plans to avoid unmapped or moving obstacles on the flight.
