Hi I am building a MIT Racecar. At this moment, I just want to test drive the car with the "2D Nav Goal" from rviz. I do not need map, planner, or obstacle avoidance. I just want the car to drive to the goal no matter what.

How can I do this with move_base?


Update from July 24, 2018

I am thinking use the move_base_mapless_demo.launch in husky_navigation and remove the obstacle layer from the map

This is certainly possible, but I think walking you through all of relevant parameters / components of move_base that you'd be changing is asking a lot, especially without seeing what you've already tried. My advice would be to start from one of the example navigation configs (e.g., husky_navigation), and incrementally change it to match your stated objectives. If you get stuck on a specific aspect of it, feel free to post your attempt and I'm sure someone will be able to help.
