Randomized Navigation to a Wall through Convex Obstacles

[Download PostScript] [Download PDF]

We consider the problem of navigating through an unknown enviroment in which the obstacles are convex, and each contains a circle of diameter 1. The task is to reach a given straight line, in the distance $n$ from our original position. Our randomized algorithm has competitive ratio $n^{0.75}$, and it uses tactile information only. This is the first algorithm that offers any competitive ratio for the problem.
