base motion planner with OMPL

Hi there, I wanted to create motion plans for my robot base (and not for an arm) using OMPL (more specifically RRT). I have found the ompl_planner_base package, but I get an error from svn:

https://code.ros.org/svn/wg-ros-pkg/branches/trunk_cturtle/sandbox/ompl_planner_base' doesn't exist

Is there any tweak to use the arm_navigation stack to provide plans for a robot base (ideally integrated with the navigation stack)?

thanks

Thanks. Actually it is exactly what I wanted, but the repository from ompl_planner_base is not working: "404 not found" Procópio Silveira Stein ( 2012-02-07 19:43:26 -0500 )edit

From what you describe, the SBPL lattice planner is what you´re looking for. Note that in general, it´s not easily possible to use a arm_navigation planner for motion planning for a mobile base (or vice versa).

Actually, the planners used in the arm_navigation stack (sampling-based) are not specific to arm planning. You can use them just fine for base planning. However, they are likely not going to be as fast as an A*-type planner, and won't give you optimality guarantees.
