I have to develop an algorithm to move a robot to its goal avoiding a u-shaped obstacle. Something like this:

My robot can go inside the U, and it has to know how to go out. The problem is that between robot's position and its goal there is a u-shaped obstacle, with the U pointing to the robot. The robot has to move to its goal, but it can fall inside the U-shaped obstacle and it has to go out again.

I have to use reactive paradigm and potential fields.

How can I do this?

This reads like a homework assignment. Can you clarify what you've already done yourself, whether you've searched for pkgs already, which ones you found and why they didn't solve your issue?

As is, this doesn't seem like a proper ROS Answers question.

@gvdhoorn It not depends on the question, it only depends on who is answer it because I have asked something similar in another question and another user pointed me to what do I have to do and what ROS packages I can use.
