Avoidance obstacles

Hi Ros Users:

I like to do the next thing: i have a P3DX model in ROS/Gazebo with hokuyo senson. I'd like that when Hokuyo sensor detects a obstacle P3DX will be able to avoidance it. So for example if the hokuyo laser detects a obstacle in 2metres, P3DX angular velocity should change to avoidance it.

What is the way to do that? where can I start? or is there any package that does that?

Thanks a lot in advance.

The 2d navigation stack does that for you, but you have to properly configure everything.

There are some algorithms implemented: Elastic Bands or DWA

Otherwise, the first step is to read about obstacle avoidance algorithms, choose the one that better fits your needs and implement it.
