I followed the tutorial given here

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

to this

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <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"/>

but I can not get the robot to move.
