I'm trying to predict the collision between two driving robots. For now in simulation only. So, what I want to do is to detect the possible collision by using each robots speed and orientation and try to see if their future paths collide. I'm assuming, that the world map is known. If a potential collision at an upcoming intersection is detected, one of the turtlebots should slow down, while the other is passing by. Only after the intersection is free again, the other turtle should cross.

Basically, for now my goal is something similar as they accomplished in this video:

I'm somewhat new to ROS and would love any good advice, where tackling this would be most effective.

Thanks for any help!

(ROS Kinetic, Ubuntu 16.04)
