Through application of Pontryagin’s maximum principle we derive minimum-time optimal trajectories for a “steered particle” agent with constraints on speed and turning rate to reach a point on the plane with free terminal heading. We also present a formulation of the optimal trajectories in the form of a state-feedback control law that is applicable to real time motion planning on a robotic system with these motion constraints.
