Your robot seems to turn and react very slowly, and that seems to be preventing it from following the path well.

It looks like your acceleration limits are set very low:

acc_lim_x: 0.01
acc_lim_y: 0.00
acc_lim_theta: 0.02

I would try tuning your acceleration limits so that they more closely match what your robot can do.

OK thanks i will try that and see what happens , but why is the robot is colliding with the wall ,how can i fix it

His comment is trying to tell you that it hits the wall because turning limit is set so low that move_base essentially con't control it. I do not know if he is correct or not, but that is what he is saying.

sir i change the value you mentioned above its not helping ?

It seems like your robot is not tracking path well. The path leads away from the wall, but move_base is not able to follow it and hits the wall. Adjusting acceleration should allow better path tracking, but there may be other fields you need to adjust too.

@abraham Hi,bro,I have the same question with you. I have a car-like robot with skid_steer_controll but I don't know how to set the params with teb_local_planner. Have you solved the problem?

hi, you can use the above setting by only changing the footprint , topic and frame names of your robot. The problem was gazebo update and other settings, you can easly chalk your systems changing parameters of gazebo update rate, teb, global planner, using rqt graph by using the command "rosrun rqt configuration rqt configuration" . To understand more about the values you chalk out Ros wiki

@abraham Thank you so much bro, I will try it by your advice.
