Any documentation/instructions available for using Segbot package for navigation? I am trying to implement autonomous navigation on a Segway based Robot. Currently, the only available sensor for navigation is hokuyo. So far I have been able control the Segway using libsegwayrmp and use hector_slam with the hokuyo node. I am now trying to use the segbot code for navigation . I have couple of questions regarding the same: 1) Can we use the map generated by hector slam or is gmapping preferred? 2) What is the purpose of segbot_gui ( question_dialog_plugin) with regard to navigation? 3) Also to run the navigation stack for segbot : roslaunch segbot_navigation navigation.launch? Is there anything I am missing? Thanks in advance

Apologies for the lack of documentation. I need to work on that pretty soon to hand over the project to someone else, but I'm not sure if updated documentation will be sufficient for people outside our lab. I will update my answer when I've added this documentation.

  1. It does not matter how the map was generated.
  2. segbot_gui is not used in navigation. None of the launch files in segbot_navigation use it.
  3. You've got the right command. You'll also need to supply a map file, as the default one won't work for you.

Good Luck!
