Hello Guys,

I am setting up my Robot System and I have the Odometry and I created a URDF-File, how can I combine the URDF File with the RVIZ and the Odometry to have a represenation of the Movement and my robot model?

Thanks in advance, Felix

I would load your odom data into a sensor_msgs/JointState message, then subscribe to that with the robot_state_publisher node, passing it your URDF as a parameter. Finally you can use rviz to display the TF data that RSP is broadcasting.
