When an obstacle suddenly appears in the trajectory of a vehicle a path has to be designed in real time to avoid the collision. A vast number of path planning methods for ground vehicles have been proposed until now. A comparative evaluation of the different methods is necessary to illustrate their advantages and disadvantages and ease their selection. In this paper, two different finite element formulations for collision avoidance are presented and compared for a case study, which is used in the literature as a benchmark. Conclusions regarding the performance of the methods are drawn.
