I need to implement navigation stack with the CAT Vehicle ( steering based car model ) . I am using the following link.

Now, i need to kno the data of teh following command: " catkin_create_pkg my_robot_name_2dnav move_base my_tf_configuration_dep my_odom_configuration_dep my_sensor_configuration_dep "

I am using the velodyne Laser, so the "my_sensor_configuration_dep" will take the value of "velodyne". But how to get the "my_tf_configuration_dep" and "my_odom_configuration_dep" ?

I am not able to get these terms from from the launch file i am using.

Following are the launch files.

1: CAT_Vehicle_Skidpan.launch
