Impact of control representations on efficiency of local nonholonomic motion planning In this paper various control representations selected from a family of harmonic controls were examined for the task of locally optimal motion planning of nonholonomic systems. To avoid dependence of results either on a particular system or a current point in a state space, considerations were carried out in a sub-space of a formal Lie algebra associated with a family of controlled systems. Analytical and

Results of the paper are important for designers of motion planning algorithms not only to preserve controllability of the systems but also to optimize their motion.
