I am working on Guardian mobile robot. It has 2 ROS packages, one for real robot and other for Gazebo simulation. Mapping and navigation code is available in real robot package and not in Gazebo simulation package. Please tell, how can I run mapping and navigation code in Gazebo package. Thanks

If you are using the packages from here (you didn't say, so I had to guess), then there are launch files available for starting the navigation stack in the guardian_sim packages. For example, guardian_ros_pkg/guardian_sim/guardian_nav/launch/move_base_sim.launch.

Thanks for your answer, I am using ROS Indigo and for Indigo version guardian_sim folder downloaded from does not contain guardian_nav package. The Guardian packages link you shared also supports ROS Hydro.

@Geoff I have setup ROS hydro in my system to run guardian_nav package, but unfortunately its not working. Error is: Waiting on transform from base_footprint to map to become available before running costmap, tf error:

Please help.
