Hi everyone,

I'm trying to move a custom robot from the origin to an initial pose with 2D Pose estimate and facing some problem.

  1. It takes longer to move to it's initial pose (compared to the turtlebot amcl_demo) even when the distance is very close to the origin

  2. The movement is not smooth as the robot tries to go back and forth between the origin and the initial pose.

Is it a typo or you actually use 2D Pose estimate to move a robot ? 2D Pose estimate only set the robot initial pose but doesn't make it move.

Yes, it's to set the initial pose. Thanks. I'll edit the question to reflect that.

I think what @Delb was saying is that the you should use the goal topic to tell the robot to move. The initial pose topic is used to tell the robot where it currently is.
