Home Teaching WS2021 Parallel Computing Lab

Lab Parallel Computing for Mobile Robots (MA-INF 4226)

In this lab, students gain hands-on experience with parallel computing principles and the CUDA framework. Starting off with simple, introductory examples and then moving on to a common motion planning task, a parallelized version of shortest path finding with the A* algorithm in a Visibility Graph will be implemented using C++ in small groups of two or three students. More details on the topics and the requirements will be presented at the first introductory meeting.

Prerequisites: C++, Linux

Contents: CUDA computing, Shortest path planning, Collision Checking, Visibility Graph, A*
