Hi, I have checked several tutorial,examples,and questions. I also have wrote : robot_setup_laser,robot_setup_tf,robot_setup_odometry,robot_setup_base packages,and launch file. The laser data is real. tf,odom's data are now fake,latter will be true.

My question is how to navigation by the map which dynamically generate, not by static map generated by gmapping?

Which portion should I load? map_server? gmapping?

Which configuration should I set? Now I only know in

  1. global_costmap_params.yaml -> static_map: false , rolling_window: true

I have already change the file in navigation_tutorials/navigation_stage/move_base_config

Am I right? Is there any location I lose? Thank you~~

My launch file is

There's some weird stuff going on in your launch files, particularly with the inclusion of the "fake_localization" node. Have you tried running the move_base_gmapping_5cm.launch launch file in the navigation_stage package? If that works for you, you'd just want to replace the rosstage node with your custom odometry and laser scan.

Thank you for this information. I have a question that why move_base_amcl_5cm.launch use static map (willow-full-0.05.pgm) in map_server node? If I want to build map during slam not using static map. Should I also change move_base_amcl_5cm.launch ?

The move_base_amcl* launch files are not supposed to use a dynamic map. Only the move_base_gmapping* launch files are supposed to use slam.
