Hi there,

maybe it is the a bit wrong to ask such a question here, but I know that you guys are the most experienced ones ;-).

We implement as a global exploration strategy the "frontier-exploration". But actually, I even do not know if this is the best one for just exploring an unknown area, because we need to tell our superviser what our motivation was. Does anyone know a good list of compairsions of such global exploration strategy (e.g. Stumble Around, Wall Following, Frontier Exploration, ...)

PS.: Springers Handbook have not such a compairsion, am I right?

Greetz and thanks, tiko

Yep, this seems not to be the right fit for as it's neither ROS-specific, nor is there a clear answer to this question. I don't know a better place to ask though. As to the question: You need to specify, what you want to optimize in your exploration: Time, Safety, Information, ...

The Robotics Stackexchange site ( ) would be a better place to ask this question.

@Eric: I found the site right after my post, but actually it seems a bit lonely with only about 500 posts. @dornhege: Thats the point: what algorithms are suitable to optimize wich criteria?
