Hi, I am looking for a python tutorial where working code samples that illustrate how global_planner should be used. I have a map with a robot on it and I want to plot the path between A and B in Rviz by using a marker. I have looked at but I could not figure out how to use it.

Thank you for your time.

Well, the global planner is a C++ plugin to move_base. Once properly configured, a nav_msgs/Path is published from the current position to the goal, when it receives a new goal. This can also be visualized in rviz.

maybe have a look at the general navigation tutorials.

If this is not sufficient, please provide more context what you are trying to do. Also please state what you've tried so far, what did and what didn't work and what resources you used for finding similar problems. Thanks.

@mgruhler Hi. I am currently working on path planning. What I want to do is generate a path and the only information I have is the pose of a aruco_tag frame, relative to my camera_link (not /map). I also do not want to use move_base to navigate through that path but I cannot find any tutorial to do so. Could you help me?
