I want to publish navigation goals to the turtlebot running the amcl_demo.launch with a specific map file.

In general when amcl_demo.launch file is launched with the mapfile, we can send the navigation goals to the turtlebot using the Rviz GUI tool. But i want to send the navigation goals to the turtlebot form a pyhton script that i have written the Navigation Goal parameters in it.

I could figure out that, the Rviz sends the navigation goals to the topic /move_base_simple/goal. I want to know the correct message format of the navigation goal that should be sent to the turtlebot.

How do i get this task done?? Anyone who knows the answer, please help me.

Thank You
