Hi, I'm using ROS kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04.

I should make a new Topic, but have no idea how to display it.

To be honest, that topic is kinds of walking human. ( No need to make it like a real human.)

Once I get to know how to display my topics on rviz canvas, my task must get progressed by a lot.

Thanks in advance :)

First and easiest is to make a node which subscribes your topic and publishes another visualization topic of type Marker (or MarkerArray) (look at http://wiki.ros.org/rviz/DisplayTypes... ).

The other option is to implement a custom RViz. See e.g. the tutorial at http://ros.org/doc/api/rviz_plugin_tu... .
