Hi all, I want to draw path between points, but the paths cannor be diagonal. Therefore the paths should have corners. Think it as a rectangle, you want to move from a corner to another corner, but cannot move diagonally. How can I show that on matlab? The coordinates are attached.
Thanks

Can you show your attempts? What have you tried?

clear all
clc
for k =1:length(p)
for i = 1:length(p)
x = [p(k,1) p(i+1,1) p(i+1,1) p(i+1,1)];
y = [p(k,2) p(1,2) p(1,2) p(i+1,2)];
x1 = [p(k,1) p(k,1) p(k,1) p(i+1,1)];
y1 = [p(k,2) p(i+1,2) p(i+1,2) p(i+1,2)];
plot(x,y,x1,y1)
i = i+1;
hold on
end
k=k+1;
end
when k is larger than 1, the code does not print the thing I want.

I reached a succes
x = p(:,1);
y = p(:,2);
plot(x,y,'.r')
hold on
for i = 1:length(x)-1
plot([x(i) x(i+1)],[y(i) y(i)])
plot([x(i+1) x(i+1)],[y(i) y(i+1)])
pause(0.5)
end
hold off

thanks again.
Yes, and I want to store the length of every path. While visiting the points in the file 'coordinate' if I the line crosses an obstacle(which is attached as file), I am going to assign the length of that path as infinite.
clear all
clc
close all
x = p(:,1);
y = p(:,2);
plot(x,y,'.r')
xo = obst(:,1); %x coordinate
yo = obst(:,2); %y coordinate
wo = obst(:,3); %width
ho = obst(:,4); %height
for i= 1:length(obst)
Rec = rectangle('Position', [xo(i) yo(i) wo(i) ho(i)]); %plotting obstacles
i = i+1;
end
hold on
for i = 1:length(x)-1
plot([x(i) x(i+1)],[y(i) y(i)])
plot([x(i+1) x(i+1)],[y(i) y(i+1)])
pause(0.5)
end
hold off
thank you

In the end I should have a 50x50 matrix which stores the lengths of each path
clc
clearvars
close all
result1=pdist2(XY,XY,'cityblock')
This is how I store my lengths, as I said earlier, if any path crosses any obstacle then the length of that path should be inf or something very large(the value actually does not matter)

• While visiting the points in the file 'coordinate' if I the line crosses an obstacle(which is attached as file)
It's too complicated for this forum. You should incorporate your own script
To connect each point with each points use this code:
for i = 1:length(x)-1
for j = i+1:length(x)-1
plot([x(i) x(j)],[y(i) y(i)])
plot([x(j) x(j)],[y(i) y(j)])
pause(0.01)
end
end
