Dear all

I have a navigation_stack implemented and working. And, I would like to send the goal coordinates in the code through a topic using actionlib. I dont want to send the goal coordinates through rviz.

Does any one may have a chunk of code I can use or a site where I can read how to do this. I have been reading actionlib tutorials but I need a more specific implementation.

The tutorial SendingSimpleGoals explains exactly what you want to do. (Also check out the other navigation tutorials, they are quite good).

The robot is working properly with the navigation_stack. I now want to move further. I can send the robot to some coordinates based on the tutorial you suggested (Using actionlib). However, I want to use actionlib to pass 2D Pose estimate and 2D Nav goal. Do you know how to do that?

Yes, it's all explained in the tutorial I linked to.
