Let's use the A* algorithm to solve a maze. Consider the following figure:
# symbols indicate obstacles. The symbol
o represents the starting point and
x represents the goal. Our goal is to find the shortest path from the start to the end point. Let's see how to do it in Python. The following solution is a variant of the solution provided in the
simpleai library. Create a new Python file and import the following packages:
import math from simpleai.search import SearchProblem, astar
Create a class that contains the methods needed to solve the problem:
# Class containing the methods to solve the maze class MazeSolver(SearchProblem): ...
