I have some very basic question about the hector_navigation. First of all, i did not found any documentation about it.

So my questions are: Is the hector_navigation installed, when i installed hector_slam? What published data does the hector_navigation need? What data has the hector_navigation to publish? Is the navigation_planner the package that is required, to find a way for my robot through a maze anyway? Or do i just need parts of it? I did not even found a way to install it properly yet.

So many questions.

Maybe i short overview on what we want to do: We want to use RTAB-Map and a Kinect to create a map for our robot. Then we want to convert it to laser-scanner-data, so the hector_slam can use it. And of course the hector_slam should guide us through the maze(with the hector_navigation?).

Please, i really need some help. I would really appreciate it!

I think you should have a look at the package about hector_move_base_navigation:

Hi was wondering that by your answer, would you say that the hector navigation packaged that you link works hand-in-hand with the hector slam package (

In other words, I can simply install the hector navigation package and run it together with the hector slam package?
