Following path at varying velocities follow up

Post by kkim108 » 10 Apr 2016, 22:22

Hi,

This is a follow-up question to this post:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5209

So this algorithm works to traverse a path at varying speeds, but I noticed that simFollowPath looks much smoother than this algorithm, even if the algorithm is set to follow a constant velocity anyway. Are there any functions that could make my path following algorithm look as smooth as simFollowPath? Perhaps something that controls the acceleration.

Thank you.

Hello,

yes, you can additionally use following 3 functions, that allow to compute smooth velocity/acceleration profiles:
Cheers
