GPS navigation and playback in ROS

I hope you can help me! :)

I would like to implement a GPS navigation system on my skid-steering mobile robot which has a LMS111 SICK laser, two SICK encoders and a Novatel RTK GPS system with sub-inch accuracy. In particular, my GPS system uses a base station and a rover station (which is installed on my robot, at the moment). The rover station outputs data in NMEA or Novatel format on a serial port which I can read without problems.

I would like to set a starting and an ending point for my robot and make him follow a particular path by recording GPS coordinates every moment; then, I would like to implement an algorithm able to make the robot follow autonomously and again the recorded GPS coordinates in order to playback the same path.

Can you give me suggestions on how to do this, please? Is there any ROS example or documentation which I can use, for example?

Thank you for you support!

It seems too late, but for the others who have the same question watch this tutorial starting from this moment.

Could you please update your answer with a summary of what's in the video? Without that video, this answer doesn't have any content. And should that video disappear (which happens frequently), then this answer will not be helpful.

Unfortunately, that video is based on ros simulation and Husky A200, I think it is not possible to extend it to other mobile robots.
