Hello !

I try to use the elastic band planner in order to do navigation for an omni-directional robot.
My question is: How to configure the eband_local_planner for omni-directional or holonomic navigation ?

I don't find any specific parameter for this planner on the following website:
I tried to use base_local_planner parameters but using EBandPlannerROS instead of TrajectoryPlannerROS but it doesn't works (nothing changes).
If this planner is configurable, how to do this ?

If anyone can help me (or just giving me the list of parameters for the eband_local_planner), I will be grateful,

Please open a github issue about the lack of documentation.

Ok, we can find most of the parameters here: eband_trajectory_controller.cpp - "initialize" function
Moreover the documentation for the eband_local_planner parameters on the ROS website is under construction.

Thanks to all,

I'm not sure if the eband_local_planner has a setting to select between holonomic, and non-holonomic robots. To me, it seems like it is currently configured to work with both.

As for finding the parameters, you can look through the initialize section of the planner to see what parameters are available: Line 84 in eband_local_planner.cpp

Unfortunately, I no longer have my .yaml file from when I experimented with this planner to share with you, but you should be able to put it together from here following the format of other parameter files.

Thank you for your answer. I use a youbot base in simulation but the eband_local_planner provides just non-holonomic movements. I found that there are too few parameters specified in the cpp file and none for setting the type of movement.
Thank you again for answering me.
