This paper presents a new approach to find an approximate solution for the nonlinear path planning problem. In this approach, first by defining a new formulation in the calculus of variations, an optimal control problem, equivalent to the original problem, is obtained. Then, a metamorphosis is performed in the space of problem by defining an injection from the set of admissible trajectory-control pairs in this space into the space of positive Radon measures.
