About this course

The concept of path planning presented in this course is too general and applicable on almost any thing, so if you are a game developer, a mathematician, a physician ... etc. this course is also for your.

I wish if the instructor was coding the solutions rather than reading them line by line, and consider the direction of the streets (bidirectional/unidirectional ), or consider the crowdedness of the streets that lead to the destination, or traffic lights, or reported accidents ... etc. but these were all not considered in the presented algorithm.

Yet, the instructor is knowledgeable about the subject, and he has a nice style of breaking down the difficult part and present them in a simple way.

Anyways, there is always a room for improvement .. and I wish the author keeps updating this course ...
