Hello, i am trying to navigate a P3AT using navigation stack of ROS. My P3AT robot spawned in USARSim Simulator, when click on "2D Pose Estimate" button in rviz, following warning appears:-

[ WARN] [1418755409.463328718]: Failed to transform initial pose in time (Lookup would require extrapolation into the future.  Requested time 1418755409.463123216 but the latest data is at time 1418755409.267793132, when looking up transform from frame [/map] to frame [/base_link])

and then the following Pose Estimatation INFO appears:-

[ INFO] [1418755409.463394700]: Setting pose (1418755409.463378): 0.010 1.002 0.000

and when i assign a goal through rviz, robot roams around instead of reaching to the goal and following warning keeps on coming:-

[ WARN] [1418755475.875007845]: Costmap2DROS transform timeout. Current time: 1418755475.8750, global_pose stamp: 1418755475.5657, tolerance: 0.3000
[ WARN] [1418755476.294750399]: Could not get robot pose, canceling reconfiguration

I tried a lot every where but could not get any solution for this.

  1. Here you can see the rqt_graph Click here

  2. Here you can see the frame results Click here

  3. Below you can see the publishing rate of /odom /scan and /tf

    /odom-->average rate: 5.002 min: 0.193s max: 0.210s std dev: 0.00788s window: 39
    /scan--->average rate: 4.997 min: 0.193s max: 0.210s std dev: 0.00782s window: 39
    /tf-------->average rate: 40.086 min: 0.000s max: 0.112s std dev: 0.04128s window: 250

Below is ths result for rosrun tf tf_monitor

did you manage to make it work?

hi @Mehdi, I couldn't resolved it, so instead of using ROS navigation stack i've created my own navigation stack. it is not fully autonomous but i can say it semi autonomous. :)
