Hi to all,

I sucessfully implemented nav2d package on my real robot and managed to make accurate maps. Now I'm looking for navigating through it via tutorial2 from nav2d/tutorials (give him a goal after positioning my robot on the map and wait it reaches there). I know it can be used for simulated maps using stage_ros, but I want to make this for maps I have.

Assuming I have everything OK for nav2d, I'd like to you explain me how do I communicate map_server with nav2d and make a call for requesting the map I have, just like amcl as a service call (nav_msgs/GetMap) or something similar. Like move_base, amcl and map_server for navigation to set goals.

Here is my tutorial2.launch file.


<!-- Some general parameters -->
<param name="use_sim_time" value="false" />
<rosparam file="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/ros.yaml"/>

<!-- Start Stage simulator with a given environment -->
<!-- <node name="Stage" pkg="stage_ros" type="stageros" args="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/world/"> -->
<!-- <param name="base_watchdog_timeout" value="0" /> -->
<!-- </node> -->

<!-- Start the Operator to control the simulated robot -->
<node name="Operator" pkg="nav2d_operator" type="operator" >
<!-- <remap from="scan" to="base_scan"/> -->
<rosparam file="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/operator.yaml"/>
<rosparam file="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/costmap.yaml" ns="local_map" />

<!-- Load the environment map in the map_server -->
    <node name="map_server" pkg="map_server" type="map_server" args="$(find catkin_ws)/mapihave.yaml" />

<!-- Start particle filter to track the robot's position -->
<node name="SelfLocalizer" pkg="nav2d_localizer" type="localizer">
<!-- <remap from="scan" to="base_scan"/> -->
<param name="min_particles" type="int" value="5000"/>
<param name="max_particles" type="int" value="20000"/>

<!-- Start the Navigator to move the robot autonomously -->
<node name="Navigator" pkg="nav2d_navigator" type="navigator">
    <rosparam file="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/navigator.yaml"/>

    <node pkg="tf" type="static_transform_publisher" name="map_odom" args="0 0 0 0 0 0 \/map odom 100" />

<node name="SetGoal" pkg="nav2d_navigator" type="set_goal_client" />

<!-- Start the joystick-driver and remote-controller for operation-->
<!-- <node name="Joystick" pkg="joy" type="joy_node" /> -->
<node name="Remote" pkg="nav2d_remote" type="remote_joy" />

<!-- RVIZ to view the visualization -->
<!-- <node name="RVIZ" pkg="rviz" type="rviz" args=" -d $(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/tutorial2.rviz" /> -->


I had to make a static transform for map_server since it needs to retrieve information from map frame. But after launching rviz it doesn't load my map.

Thank you
