Path planning is one of the core research areas in robotics which deals with finding the optimal path for robots considering the required constraints. In this talk, we will revisit two primitive path planning methods, cell decomposition-based path planning and artificial potential field-based path planning. By using the inspiration from nature, new concepts using opposite angle and water-sink model are introduced for advanced path planning. These methods give us not only the efficiency but also the effectiveness in robot path planning problem.
