I will attach my log below. My main problem that I am facing is that the BendyRuler Obstacle avoidance is not working well when it detects an obstacle straight in front of it. 90% of the time, when it senses an obstacle straight in front of it, it does a circle then sometimes gets stuck in a circular pattern. Other times I am noticing that the rover is almost spinning too far to one side. When the rover (Skid Steering Platform) senses an obstacle off to it’s side, 90% of the time it does what I would expect it to do as it rotates the other direction and proceeds towards the next waypoint. But something happens when an obstacle is directly in front of it that just does not make sense to me. I have tried this on hard concrete as well as in the grass. It does not seem to make a difference between those two materials as it still does the same thing.

I am using Rover 4.1 with a LighWare SF45 350 degree LIDAR
Addition: I was using simple object avoidance which worked fairly well when objects were to the side of it, however it too experienced problems when there was an obstacle directly in front of it as it would just simply stop and sometimes inch forward very slowly. It would eventually get around the obstacles but it would take upwards of 15-20 minutes sometimes.
