Abstract


We construct ``higher'' motion planners for automated systems
whose spaces of states are homotopy equivalent to a polyhedral
product space $Z(K,\{(S^{k_i},\star)\})$, {e.g. robot arms with
restrictions on the possible combinations of simultaneously moving
nodes.} Our construction is shown to be optimal by explicit
cohomology calculations. The higher topological complexity of
other {families of} polyhedral product spaces is also determined.

Keywords


Sequential motion planning; Schwarz genus; polyhedral products; zero-divisors
