2.Think of Ψ(p) as defining theheightof the potential terrain at pointp. This function achievesits lowest value att(assumingtis not too close to any obstacle) and its highest value (of)along the boundary of any obstacle. The final potential field Ψ is the sum of these variousfunctions.Path Finding via Gradient Descent:Given our potential field, we can apply a physics simu-lator to let our robotic marble flow “downhill” fromstot(and hope it eventually arrives!)How do we compute this path? A natural approach is to compute a path of Lecture 17 2 Spring 2018
