I made a small program that publishes a plan on the topic

Here goes the idea

for (int i=0; i<10; i++){
geometry_msgs::PoseStamped new_goal ;
tf::Quaternion goal_quat = tf::createQuaternionFromYaw(1.54);


 new_goal.pose.position.x = GPAS.InitialPoseMessage.pose.pose.position.x+(0.1*i);
 new_goal.pose.position.y = GPAS.InitialPoseMessage.pose.pose.position.x+(0.1*i);

 new_goal.pose.orientation.x = 0;
 new_goal.pose.orientation.y = 0;
 new_goal.pose.orientation.z = 0;
 new_goal.pose.orientation.w = 1;



 GPAS.GlobalPlanPublisher.publish(plan); // topic /move_base/TrajectoryPlannerROS/global_plan

When I do rostopic echo /move_base/TrajectoryPlannerROS/global_plan

I can see well the published plan correctly. However, the turtlebot robot does not move and does not follow the plan, although the plan is correctly shown in rviz. I already run amcl and move base launch files and the robot moves if I send a goal from rviz.

i wanted to test of the robot moves if I send a plan instead of a goal.

Do you have an idea what could be the issue? Is it sufficient to make the robot moving by sending a plan in topic /move_base/TrajectoryPlannerROS/global_plan or some configuration need to be made?

Thank you
