Hi, My robot is symmetric, front and back are the same. The local planner rotates robot's nose to the next goal. I want it to change this behaviour and go backwards if it is more efficient. I tried to set minimum velocity to a negative value but it did not work.

The default planners are heavily biased (gains and design) for robots that have more sensors on the front, and therefore prefer to move forward. You probably need to select non-default global and local planners that don't have these biases for your robot.
