The localisation for my mobile robot works with the AMCL package. Apparently you can also implement path planning with this package. But I don't find anything about this, how does this work?

This is my current launch file for the localisation:

<?xml version="1.0"?>


<!-- load map -->
<arg name="map_file" default="$(find mastering_ros_demo_pkg)/trappenhaliteratie20.yaml"/>

<node name="map_server" pkg="map_server" type="map_server" args="$(arg map_file)" />

    <!-- start hokuyo_node -->
<node name="hokuyo_node" pkg="hokuyo_node" type="hokuyo_node" output="screen"/>

  <arg name="tf_map_scanmatch_transform_frame_name" default="scanmatcher_frame"/>
  <arg name="base_frame" default="base_footprint"/>
  <arg name="odom_frame" default="nav"/>
  <arg name="pub_map_odom_transform" default="true"/>
  <arg name="scan_subscriber_queue_size" default="5"/>
  <arg name="scan_topic" default="scan"/>
  <arg name="map_size" default="2048"/>

    <!-- start odometry_node -->
<node name="odometry" pkg="mastering_ros_demo_pkg" type="odometry" output="screen"/>

    <!-- tf transform -->
 <node pkg="tf" type="static_transform_publisher" name="map_nav_broadcaster" args="-0.45 0 0 3.1765 0 3.1415 /base_link /laser 100"/>

AMCL localizes your robot. That localization is then fed into a planner (like move_base) for navigation. See the navigation stack and the tutorials for more help.
