%X This work introduces a path planning strategy for mobilerobots based on dynamical features of chaotic systems. This peculiar methodology of constructing trajectories envisages missions for terrain exploration, with specific purpose of search or surveillance. The proposed way to achieve fast scanning of the robot workspace consist of a scheme of imparting a chaotic motion behavior to the mobile robot using a path-planner based on the conservative Standard map. As a consequence, for a external observer, the robot trajectories resemble highly opportunistic and unpredictable, with characteristics that quickly scans the surveillance space.
