I am trying to implement frontier exploration for the Pal RObotics TIAGO robot, but I'm not sure where to start and how to do it. Is there any pack for ROS melodic that does frontier exploration? If not, can somebody help me with some code for algorithms so I may try to implement it myself

For Melodic, you can find Paul Bovbel's branch:

Alternatively the Kinetic version can be built from source but there may be a few issues when compiling.

Hi, thank you for your response. I had tried the package before and I have a problem with the markers in Rviz, they are not displayed. Do you happen to know how can I make them appear?

Thanks in advance!

Don’t recall issues with RViz but if you do maybe raise an issue in the repo but haven’t use it for a while. Nowadays I mainly use Noetic.

I found that there is a work around for RViz issue. Please check this issue:
