I run astar_avoid script to avoid obstacles? But it doesn't avoid obstacles. I can detect obstacles from the lidar euclidean cluster launch. I use the Carla simulator to test this functionality.

I don't have a vector map. Does this affect obstacle avoidance? I get the waypoints directly from Carla through waypoint loader topic

I got an idea after looking at the code and after observing the terminal output from the astar_avoid program

I could achieve it by adjusting the launch file args such as Replan set to 1.0 and avoid_start_velocity to 60.0 for one trial configuration. We can adjust the above values for better planning. The algorithm creates a new path around obstacles and seen in RVIZ.
