Revision history [back]

In order for rviz to correctly set the initialpose for AMCL, rviz's fixed frame must be the same as AMCL's map frame.

Change your fixed frame in rviz to /map and then your 2D Pose Estimates should work. You can verify that it is working by subscribing to the PoseArray particle cloud output by AMCL - after a successful estimate, a cloud of particles will be centered on the location you indicated.
