Searching with a sensor for objects and to observe parts of a known environment efficiently is a fundamental prob- lem in many real-world robotic applications such as household robots searching for objects, inspection robots searching for leaking pipelines, and rescue robots searching for survivors after a disaster. We consider the problem of identifying and planning efficient view point sequences for covering complex 3d environments. We compare empirically several variants of our algorithm that allow to trade-off schedule computation against execution time. Our results demonstrate that, despite the intractability of the overall problem, computing effective solutions for coverage search in real 3d environments is feasible.
