Hi everybody,

currently, I'm working on AMCL navigation (from Point A to Point B) and for this reason I'm using DWAL_local_planner. The DWA_local_planner works well but I'm facing an issue when I put an obstacle in its way (the obstacle is put in its global path before it starts to move). As you see in the following picture,

RVIZ view

When the robot recognizes the obstacle, the DWA_local_planner is not able to produce a path as the following error and it stucks.

 [ WARN] [1510564078.318379963, 78.707000000]: DWA planner failed to produce path.

I have changed the local_planner parameters like path_distance_bias, goal_distance_bias, forward_point_distance, etc. in order to have an other behavior from the DWA_local_planner but I did not achieve.

Do you have any idea why it behaves like this? I would appreciate if you look at this @David Lu. Thanks in advance,

You can find below the navigation parameters

in the local_costmap yaml file you should replace the Global_frame Map with odom
