I want to understand and write a C++ program in gazebo/ros to make turtlebot avoids obstacles while moving forward using pointcloud data. How to get started with this? I have already created a node to subscribe point cloud data and visualize this in rviz.

Thanks a lot

Thank you. I would also like to know, is someone did the same thing, obstacle avoidance using point cloud data so that I don’t have to reinvent the wheel?
