Considers the problem of robot motion planning using an approximate cell decomposition method for Cspace representation. By means of a hierarchical multilevel discretization the authors are able to reduce the complexity of the problem and to provide a practically feasible procedure for its solution. Hierarchical discretization is based on the use of a multisource distance field that is introduced and described in the paper. The developed procedure, used as an heuristic, systematically reduces the amount of memory needed for implementing the motion planning algorithm. Using such a procedure, several instances of the motion planning problem, involving for example two three-links manipulators acting in the same tridimensional environment, have been solved in a reasonable amount of time
