How to send goals at real time to a robot without using rviz? (the coordinates of the goals on the map are known) I want to write a code to get a message in the terminal like this: 'press 1 to go to (8,2)' // (8,2) x,y is the coordinate of the goal.

Have a look at the above link.I am using a similar program to send goals to the robot. Davinci is right that you need tell us more about the setup. If you are using your own robot not a Turtlebot then you need setup navigation stack before sending goals

Yes I know this one but it is not enough to make an interface with the user. It is not turtlebot, it is my own robot.

Rviz is just a display method, you don't need it. Are you using a turtlebot or something else? You should write a program that writes to the command velocity topic with a controller that navigates it to that spot. But should clarify more what setup you have.

Some other robot made by a team I am working with. I know how to send goals using sending simple goals tutorial, but I want to make a real time user interface (not GUI).
