I have obtained a map using RTAB-Map. Now I want to use the point cloud obtained to navigate from a place in the map to the required goal created using the Kinect XBOX 360 and RTAB-Map. Please suggest how should I do it?

Hi there, this is a quite common task that is solved with the ROS Navigation Stack ( ) You can install it like this:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-navigation

assuming you have Ros Indigo installed, if you have Kinetic, just change it to kinetic.

Since you have a Kinect XBOX you also want to look into the Turtlebot navigation package ( )

You'll end up with something looking like this: image description

But for that t happen you need to convert your pointcloud to a laserscan, good luck for you there is a package for that ;) Check it here:

Afterwards, you use the navigation stack and create your map with the laser scan, it'll be as easy as publishing a 2D Nav Goal for your robot to navigate. Good luck!
