Paper Abstract

A rapid sorting technique with a wide range of applications has been developed and performance tested. The applications include path planning for complex manipulators with many degrees of freedom and autonomous under water vehicles. This paper describes the results and trade-offs behind the design and implementation phases during hardware and software development. The presented sorting technique is particularly useful as a collision checking, or conversely homing, subroutine in path planning in complex and dynamic environments.
