This package is used to get poses from Rviz by using the goal tool and to store them in a XML-file pose_manager.png


To get a Pose you just have to use the destination tool so that rviz publish the pose in the corresponding topic. You can use this tool if you need to know a particular pose ( position and orientation ). The tools works also in simulation mode.

This package subscribes to move_base/goal an saves every incoming Pose in a XML-file. The name of the XML-file is CURRENT_TIMEposen.xml and will be saved at the location the program starts. The format will be:

<Pose X="" Y="" Z="" XQ="" YQ="" ZQ="" WQ=""></Pose>

The gotten Pose is also published on the ROS INFO stream for monitoring or direct copy/paste purposes.
