The effectivity of robotic surface processing (sweeping) with randomized procedures can be highly improved procedures by planning effective motion paths for the robot. In this paper we introduce a heuristic planning approach at the example of robotic lawn mowers. The resulting planning software Aria enables route calculations within seconds for areas up to 2000 m2. It uses a four-part planning process to determine and optimize collision-free motion paths under consideration of robot specific motion characteristics.
