Description: A paper and movie on robotic navigation. Finding the Shortest Path: The equation that describes the arrival time of this expanding front as it depends on the possible speed at any point and direction is the Eikonal equation. The fast marching method is used to solve the equation for the first arrival time, and then we can trace backwards from B to A to construct the actual path.
