I am using the base_local_planner package with the holonomic flag set to false.

However, I want to know if there will be any difference in performance between a car like robot and a skid steer robot? If yes, then what care do we need to take to switch between the two.

Thank you.

Ackermann (car-like) robots pose very different navigation challenges from a traditional diff drive or holonomic robot.

The Ackermann SIG is a very loose collection of ROS users working with ackermann-type robots.
