I am working with a turtlebot 2 with a kobuki base. I am new to ROS, I have gone through the tutorials that are available on the website. My question is if anyone out here can provide some insight as to how to program the turtlebot to follow a predefined path such as move in z-direction 5 counts, move in x direction 5 counts, so on and so forth.....

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I figured out what is the best way. This question can be closed I'm not sure how to do it. But to answer my own question, I have to use the cmd_vel topic to subscribe Twist messages to the robot in order to follow a path.
