How to use nav2_simple_commander in foxy?

asked 2021-12-12 08:19:37 -0500

I am trying to follow to create a simple demo application using navigation2 (the simple commander API looks really cool for a simple demo application, BTW). However I am unable to find the simple commander package in foxy. The foxy-develbranch at does not even have the corresponding directory for nav2_simple_commander.

What should I install to get in foxy or alternatively what API/tutorial should I use to implement a simple example that sets the initial pose estimate for a turtlebot and then navigates to a fixed goal point in Python?

Incidentally, I tried to work in galactic, where the package for the simple commander appears to exist - but there I run into troubles of being unable to get the turtlebot3 simulation packages for webots to work (I guess some other packages wait for release).

Nevermind. I used this example from Steve: (which seems to be an early draft of nav2_simple_commander). I only used the tiny part I needed to navigate to the initial pose. I presume that the simple commander was only implemented for galactic, so future users will be able to use it (it seems great!).
