Navigation in a simulated environment
The navigation routine allows to move the robot to a specific point in the map taking into consideration the obstacles. The following instruction launches the navigation demo for Mini-Lab:
$ roslaunch minilab_demo_simulation minilab_demo_navigation.launch
STEP 1 : Use the 2D pose Estimate Button to correct the position of the robot.
Figure 1 : Robot lost
Figure 2 : Select a 2D pose estimate
STEP 2 : To move to a specific point use the 2D Nav Goal Button.
Figure 3 : Select a 2D pose goal
STEP 3 : Mini-Lab should start to move, following the path found
Figure 4 : Path found in Rviz
Figure 5 : The robot model in Gazebo should follow the same path as in Rviz.
