I followed the tutorial given here http://wiki.ros.org/husky_navigation/...

After launching the three commands on three separate teminals, the husky robot is not moving at all, the 2D Navigation does not seem to work or maybe I am not using it correctly.

I can provide more details if this is not sufficient.

A typical error in rviz window is " No transform from [front_left_wheel_link] to [odom] "

Hi arttp2,

Did you manage to solve this problem? I am using ROS Kinetic and having the exact same problem now. I have been able to get rid of the error "No transform from [front_left_wheel_link] to [odom]" by changing

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<launch>
  <node name="rviz" pkg="rviz" type="rviz" args="-d $(find husky_viz)/rviz/robot.rviz" output="screen"/>
</launch>

to this

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<launch> 
    <node name="joint_state_publisher" pkg="joint_state_publisher" type="joint_state_publisher"/>
    <node name="rviz" pkg="rviz" type="rviz" args="-d $(find husky_viz)/rviz/robot.rviz"/>
</launch>

but I can not get the robot to move.

Cheers,
