RVO2 port to Javascript

RVO2 Library: Reciprocal Collision Avoidance for Real-Time Multi-Agent Simulation.

This is an alpha release of a RVO2 port from the C# version to Javascript, only for research purposes and still not intended to be used in production environments. Paper with full details as well as C++ code can be found at the original authors' site.

See the online demo.

Basic Usage

Import core javascript files

	<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/common.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/agent.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/kdtree.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/simulator.js"></script>

Setup your custom scenario

	var simulator = Simulator.instance;
	
	var setupScenario = function(simulator)	{
			// Specify global time step of the simulation.
			simulator.setTimeStep(0.25);
			
			// Specify default parameters for agents that are subsequently added
			simulator.setAgentDefaults(
					200, // neighbor distance (min = radius * radius)
					30, // max neighbors
					600, // time horizon
					600, // time horizon obstacles
					5, // agent radius
					10.0, // max speed
					new Vector2(2, 2) // default velocity
				);
				
			// Put 9 agents in a circle
			for (var i=0; i<9; i++) {
				var angle = i * (2 * Math.PI) / 9;
				var x = Math.cos(angle) * 200;
				var y = Math.sin(angle) * 200;
				simulator.addAgent(new Vector2 (x, y));
 			}
			
			// Create agent targets
			var goals = [];
			for (var i = 0; i < simulator.getNumAgents (); ++i) {
				goals.push(simulator.getAgentPosition(i).scale(-1));
			}
			simulator.addGoals(goals);
		}

How to add one obstacle

	// Add obstacle, specifying vertices in counterclockwise order.
	var vertices = [];

	vertices.push(new Vector2 (-40.0, -90.0));
	vertices.push(new Vector2 (40.0, -90.0));
	vertices.push(new Vector2 (40.0, -10.0));
	vertices.push(new Vector2 (-40.0, -10.0));

	simulator.addObstacle (vertices);
	
	// Process obstacles so that they are accounted for in the simulation.
	simulator.processObstacles ();

Run the simulation

	var interval;
	var run = function() {
		setupScenario(simulator);
			
		var step = function() {
			setPreferredVelocities(simulator);
			simulator.run();
			
			// here you can do whatever you need (i.e. draw the agents)
				
			if (simulator.reachedGoal()) {
				clearInterval(interval);
			}
		}
			
		interval = setInterval(step, 10);
	}

Dynamically adapt agent velocities

	var setPreferredVelocities = function(simulator) {
		for (var i = 0; i < simulator.getNumAgents (); ++i) {
			if (RVOMath.absSq(simulator.getGoal(i).minus(simulator.getAgentPosition(i))) < 0) {
				simulator.setAgentPrefVelocity (i, new Vector2 (0, 0));
			} else {
				// Agent is far away from its goal, set preferred velocity as unit vector towards agent's goal.
				simulator.setAgentPrefVelocity(i, RVOMath.normalize(simulator.getGoal(i).minus(simulator.getAgentPosition(i))));
			}
		}
	}
