So far I was able to generate a map using a laser range finder. Now, I want to allow the robot to see the pathways and be able to autonomously guide itself through the map. Can someone please help me set this up? I would really appreciate it. I'm very new to ros and would appreciate a detailed explanation.

I'm guessing this has something to do with amcl? How do I integrate that with my robot? My launch file is as follows:


<include file="$(find hector_mapping)/launch/mapping_default.launch"> <arg name="base_frame" value="base_frame"/> <arg name="odom_frame" value="base_frame"/> </include>

<include file="$(find hector_geotiff)/launch/geotiff_mapper.launch"> <arg name="trajectory_source_frame_name" value="base_frame"/> </include>

<node pkg="tf" type="static_transform_publisher" name="base_frame_to_laser_broadcaster" args="0 0 0 0 0 0 base_frame laser 100"/>


Thank you!

I forgot to mention I run the hokuyo_node node separately in the command line window, not through this launch file
