           The adoption of lightweight and effective swarm algorithms is required for low resource usage algorithms for mobile robot path planning crises. We present a hybrid swarm approach in this study that combines the best features of particle swarm optimization and river formation dynamics. This method looks for the shortest route while keeping the path as smooth as feasible. The best qualities of both approaches are combined and leveraged by the hybrid RFD-PSO methodology. While the RFD algorithm is well known for its smooth path discovery, it needs a lot of drops for good convergence and suffers from sinuosity problems. The generated hybrid RFD-PSO algorithm synergistically balances PSO's fast convergence with the river method's adaptive exploration and exploitation. Comparing the simulation results of the proposed method versus the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), modified Ant Colony Optimization ACO*, PSO, RFD, A*, and Dijkstra’s, Hybrid RFD-PSO have better results in creating optimal path.
