Humanoid Path Planner (collision detection and distance computations (python bindingss))

Project description

HPP-FCL — An extension of the Flexible Collision Library

Pipeline status Coverage report Conda Downloads Conda Version PyPI version

This project is initially a fork from and has evolved since then. The main new features are:

  • the use of a safety margin when detecting collision,
  • the computation of a lower bound of the distance between two objects when collision checking is performed and no collision is found.
  • the implementation of Python bindings for easy code prototyping.
  • the fix of various bugs.

This project is now used in many robotics frameworks such as Pinocchio, an open-source software which implements efficient and versatile rigid body dynamics algorithms and the Humanoid Path Planner, an open-source software for Motion and Manipulation Planning.


The development of HPP-FCL is actively supported by the Gepetto team @LAAS-CNRS and the Willow team @INRIA.
