Hallo, I want to ask about doing the localization on the web like rviz. So I could show the map on web, and next step is I should do the localization thing with that map on the web like I usually do using rviz. I use lidar only localization, so i use the laser scan matcher with csm and pcl, it could do the localization well on rviz, and now I should do the localization on the web, anyone knows how to do it?

I am using ros kinetic and hector mapping to build the map.

Thank you

Can you please clarify what you are actually trying to do?

Do you want to run the localization algorithm somewhere in the cloud? Or do you only want to do the visualization (this is what rviz is, nothing more (well, a little bit sending commands back, but not that are only topics :-))) and the localization is still on the robot.

I haven't try this one but you can check this Robot Web Tools to connect your system with web. And check this rosbridge_suite package as well.

I want to do the visualization of the lidar localization on my web, so I followed this tutorial to visualize map on the web (, it works well and now, I will use that map to be the built environment to localize my lidar @mgruhler

you're welcome :) I'm also working with a Hokuyo laser scanner, I've just create the map of the environment with hector_slam. Maybe after I make it better with the IMU and encoder data, I can try it on web as well. Good luck for you!
