toppra: Time-Optimal Path Parameterization

CircleCI Coverage Status Documentation Status


toppra is a library for computing the time-optimal path parametrization for robots subject to kinematic and dynamic constraints. In general, given the inputs:

  1. a geometric path p(s), s in [0, s_end];
  2. a list of constraints on joint velocity, joint accelerations, tool Cartesian velocity, et cetera.

toppra returns the time-optimal path parameterization: s_dot (s), from which the fastest trajectory q(t) that satisfies the given constraints can be found.

Documentation and tutorials are available here.
