No local costmap when launching nav2 multiple turtlebot3

Running Ubuntu 20.04 with ROS2 Galactic

I have problems when launching the file from Nav2. After pose estimation, I get a global costmap and the robot can move using the Nav2 Goal. The laser scan is working as it can see the other robot, but the local costmap is not working, so it will just drive right into it. On the left side of Rviz, the Navigation and Localization nodes are inactive while the Feedback node is active.

I also get the following info message for both robots:

[rviz2-4] [INFO] [1648559333.984046497] [robot1.rviz]: Message Filter dropping message: frame 'base_scan' at time 8.770 for reason 'discarding message because the queue is full'

Image of rviz from the launch: image description

Everything works when I run the launch.

Installed a fresh ROS2 galactic and installed the following: Navigation2 as source as well as sudo apt install ros-galactic-navigation2 and sudo apt install ros-galactic-nav2-bringup

Then I installed all things turtlebot and gazebo related: sudo apt install ros-galactic-turtlebot3* and sudo apt install ros-galactic-gazebo-*

Any ideas?

Hi! Can you specify exactly which changes did you make in the parameters file? Also can you check the following issue and see if you face the same behaviour??

It looks similar, as the scan data was visible in rviz, but it just would not create a local costmap. Since the single turtlebot bringup ( worked perfectly (and that relied on the nav2_params.yaml file), I just looked at the difference between that and nav2_multirobot_params_x.yaml and inserted the missing parameters. The above posted .yaml file is the result of this. Remember to change /robot1/scan to the name of your robot.

I just tested the "bug" and with your parameters files it seems to work fine!
