In this paper, we study the online path planning for khepera II mobile robot in an unknown environment. The well known heuristic A* algorithm is implemented to make the mobile robot navigate through static obstacles and find the shortest path from an initial position to a target position by avoiding the obstacles. The proposed path finding strategy is designed in a grid-map form of an unknown environment with static unknown obstacles. When the mission is executed, it is necessary to plan an optimal or feasible path for itself avoiding obstructions in its way and minimizing a cost such as time, energy, and distance. In our study we have considered the distance and time metric as the cost function.
