hello, I want to combine robot_localization module and Ros Navigation module to work on my 4 wheels robot, is it possible?

how do i adapt the two modules?

As to navigation module, which is it start entry node ? amcl or robot_pose_ekf ? can anybody instruct me on this puzzled question?

Thank you very much.

Edit your existing question - please don't answer it - unless of course you have the answer :)

Thank you, dear. but this is not my answer. I want to know some detail practical experience about this. I'm working on it now, but find a lot work to do to adapt them.

Yes, the short answer is that it is possible. The state estimation nodes in robot_localization can serve as a stand-in for robot_pose_ekf, which is one part of the ROS nav stack. You can fuse the pose from amcl with wheel encoder odometry and IMU data using the EKF or UKF in robot_localization.
