This paper presents novel fourth- and sixth-order polynomials to solve the problem of joint-space trajectory generation with a via point. These new polynomials use a single function rather than two polynomial functions matched at the via point as in previous methods. Another contribution of this paper is to expose the widespread, use of discontinuous acceleration functions in joint-space trajectory generation methods, which lead to unacceptable infinite spikes in jerk, the derivative of the acceleration.
