Hello, the question is really simple. Is there a way to use a pioneer robot on ros indigo? In the documentation I found which should be working, but it's not. roslaunch p2os_urdf pioneer3dx.gazebo.launch is not working because it depends on first gazebo_world which from hydro is know gazebo_ros and depends also on pr2_controller_manager which is not there in indigo.

I found a solution (I think) with . But, since it's supposed to be based on p2os I would like to know if there's something that I'm doing wrong.

Thanks in advance ;)

Hi Silgon, Sounds like we can help each other. I'm trying to make autonomous navigation and mapping with pioneer, odometer and laser. What's your project?

At the moment, I'm just playing around with the robot, usually I use the PR2 with groovy (there's no PR2 in indigo yet though) =)

Did you make your robot autonomous with PR2??

@cognitiveRobot My project is almost the same too. Have you found a solution to this problem? What are the other open source packages i will need to install when trying to implement pioneer 3at programs in ROS-indigo?

This package is working in indigo ( ). It is based on the github package I was asking in the question above. It is not even an alpha version, but it does work in indigo. Feel free to try it.

I've been working on collecting and creating useful URDF, launch files, etc at if you would like to try any of them, and post bugs there or contact me or the ros-sig-pioneer users group.
