I am very new to motion planning and just know how PRM and RRT work. I am particularly interested in multi DOF arm motion planning and bibed's footstep planning. As I have never used it in practice, I have no idea how much time it takes for motion planning. Collision checking looks like the most expensive part of the motion planning. Hence wanted to know if performing collision checking on FPGA have significant advantage ? Also, I would like to know what were teams in DARPA challenge were using for computation ? Thanks.

I am doing on it as my partial work of my PhD.. Now, 2D basic RRT has been implemented on artix-7 @100MHz. But just initial step, no UAV/agent full dimension constraints. expect/welcome any discussion:p.
