Hi does someone mind please explaining how to figure out where the robot is in a map without using amcl or any localization, and only using ground truth position published by Gazebo? Or is this not possible?

I know I can get perfect odom->baselink transformation, and have amcl publish map->odom transformation, but that still does not perfectly localize the robot.

Thank you for your help in advance!
