This paper studies the problem of letting an autonomous mobile robot negotiate obstacles in an optimal manner. In particular, a multi-modal control problem is addressed, where different modes of operation control the robot at different locations in the state space. The specification of the optimal discrete event dynamics is pursued through the design of optimal, parametrized switching surfaces, using results on switching surface optimization.
