max_vel_theta not honored by TrajectoryPlannerROS ?

move_base tries to turn my robot too fast, although I believe that I set limits correctly.

My questions are:

  • Am I doing something wrong ?
  • Is this a bug ?
  • What is the solution ?

My parameter file is:

  max_vel_x: 0.07
  min_vel_x: 0.04
  max_vel_theta: 0.4
  min_vel_theta: -0.4
  min_in_place_vel_theta: 0.2

  acc_lim_theta: 0.2
  acc_lim_x: 0.2
  acc_lim_y: 0.2

  holonomic_robot: false

I have checked by rosparam and rqt_reconfigure that the limits on theta are being set correctly.

The problem seems to be that in-place rotations always emit cmd_vel with theta of 1.0:

  x: 0.0
  y: 0.0
  z: 0.0
  x: 0.0
  y: 0.0
  z: 1.0

Its probably the in-place rotations by rotate recovery. Set max_rotational_vel to change that.

Yes, that was exactly the problem. Thank you very much.

I added max_rotational_vel=0.4 to base_local_planner_params.yaml and angular.z was limited correctly. I had not seen that parameter in rqt_reconfigure and did not know it existed.
