The problem of robot navigation involves planning a path to move a robot from a start point to a known target point within an obstacle course. The efficiency of such an algorithm can be measured in several ways. For instance, Lumelsky and Stepanov measure the length of the path taken in terms of obstacle perimeters. Gabriely and Rimon compare their two-dimensional algorithm's efficiency to that of the optimal algorithm. Brown Kramer and Sabalka expand upon the work of Gabriely and Rimon to produce an algorithm for dimensions greater than two. The primary objective of this research was to implement improvements in Brown Kramer and Sabalka's algorithm called Boxes, which performs a depth-first search of a discretized obstacle space. Enhancements such as subdivision of the obstacle space and the maximal coloring improvement improve the efficiency of the algorithm significantly.
