Move base for autonomous driving

Hi, This may be a very subjective question but is it a good idea to use move base for autonomous driving ? I have used move base with a robotic wheel chair that I developed and it works great. I have also used it on Husky and Turtlebot but we are not sure if we should use it for a car which is running at a higher speed compared to these indoor robot. In the outdoor scenario we have to generate the trajectory and compute collisions significantly faster then the indoor scenario. Any suggestions/comments or Experience of using move base here would be really helpful. Thanks.

The problem is not move_base but ROS. It is unable to respect fast real-time constraints. If you want fast responses, I think using ROS is not the best idea. Obviously it depends on the complexity of the computations (ROS is able to compute simple algorithms in real-time).

link text these people are successfully using ROS for autonomous driving. why do you think its not real time ?

Yes, you can do autonomous driving, of course. I just said that you cannot expect to have real-time reactions using ROS. With real-time, I thought very fast computations (needed in case of outdoor autonomous driving).
