Planning for a Car Pulling a Trailer

This problem involves differential (nonholonomic) constraints on a car-like robot that pulls a trailer. The robot has a limited steering angle, and is required to roll along the ground (i.e., it cannot move sideways). The robot can move in both forward or reverse.

The following computed examples are taken from a class project, completed in 1999 by Jun Qu at Iowa State University.
