I have learned ROS(Indigo) for some time, and still a beginner. I just want to use ROS's Navigation stack to simulate some path planning algorithm. I have knew how to simulate the Navigation with Husky(differential drive robot) in RVIZ, but now, i need to simulate the Navigation with car-like model, i cannot find the solution method from Ackermann Group.
I want to simulate the Navigation use Indigo + RVIZ + Ackermann model, what should i do ? Thanks!(sorry, my english is poor)

If you want to give the teb_local_planner a try you can start with the corresponding tutorials of the teb_local_planner wiki page. There is a tutorial about how to setup your car-like robot (with the stage simulator and and a visualization in rviz), but I recommend to start with the very first tutorial in order to get familiar with the planner.

The tutorials are supported by complete and ready-to-use examples (see this repository). Here you can investigate a complete car-like example before adapting it to your personal robot.

Additionally, before proceeding with the tutorials, I highly recommend to get familar with the concepts and fundamentals of the navigation stack (move_base, costmaps, inflation, global/local planning, tf frames, ...).

yes. of course, you can use rviz and stage, or gazebo to simulate
