I am using

  • ROS2 Foxy

  • Nav2 for navigation

  • Slam-toolbox for mapping and localization

  • create_robot for odom

When I send a command to the ActionService navigate_to_pose from Nav2, most of the time bt_navigator will fail with the error:

[bt_navigator-9] [ERROR] [1627933160.614862066] [bt_navigator]: Action server failed while executing action callback: "send_goal failed"

[bt_navigator-9] [WARN] [1627933160.615170308] [bt_navigator]: [navigate_to_pose] [ActionServer] Aborting handle.

As far as I can tell, I am calling the Service correctly and my issue might be with my configuration. My config for nav2 can be found here:

I have also thrown all logs from this specific run into a pastebin here: the error in question can be found on lines 428 & 429

As per, best solution would be to switch from Foxy to Galactic, this solved issue for me.
