Navigation ideas

Hello,

I am new to navigation and currently I have a wheeled robot and I want to implement various navigation algorithms with it. For now though, I don't have an odometer for localization and I currently use only a lidar. I have managed to do some obstacle avoidance with it, but I am out of ideas for now.

If you could help me with some navigation algorithms that don't require an odometer for localization, I would be more than happy to hear them.

Thank you for your answers and for your time in advance,

Chris

Hello, I'm not sure if it is what you want but you can use the SLAM for localization.
You can use hector_mapping (hector_slam), I know it is possible to use it without odometry.
There is also another algorithm for SLAM: slam_gmappping (gmapping) but I don't know if it is possible to use it without odometry.
You can find all the information about those 2 methods on the ros wiki (by typing hector_slam and gmapping).

I hope it will help you,
lfr
