move_base simulated in stage without map_sever and amcl

Hello all, I am using move_base as a local navigation without map_sever and amcl. I have a higher path planning planner which is a cpp file which will generate some goals. And I publish it to the move_base/goal topic. But I have some problem when I set up the navigation stack. I was following the navigation tutorial. Here is my yaml files and launch file:

BTW, this is my error when running the launch file:

Waiting on transform from base_link to map to become available before running costmap, tf error:

It expects that transform because that's what you specify in your global costmap params. MoveBase's behavior can get rather tricky if you don't use both local and global planning.
