Hello, everyone.

I have an already created .ot file at hand and I want to use rviz and octomap_server to display Octomap on rviz, but I don't know how to use octomap_server.

Can someone teach me how to use Octomap_server? If I may, I'd also like to know how to display octomap on rviz.

Thank you for your help.

To launch octomap_server add the following to your launch file:

  <node pkg="octomap_server" type="octomap_server_node" name="octomap_server">
                <param name="resolution" value="$(arg map_resolution)" />
                <param name="frame_id" type="string" value="map" />
                <param name="sensor_model/hit" value="0.8" />
                <param name="sensor_model/miss" value="0.3" />
                <param name="sensor_model/max_range" value="20.0" />
                <param name="occupancy_min_z" value="0.8" />
                <param name="occupancy_max_z" value="10.0" />
                <param name="pointcloud_min_z" value="0.8" />
                <param name="pointcloud_max_z" value="10.0" />
                <remap from="cloud_in" to="/depth/points" />

The way to pass the .ot or .bt file would be to add args="<path-to-ot-or-bt-file>" in the 1st line.

For example, <node pkg="octomap_server" type="octomap_server_node" name="octomap_server" args="">
