Hi guys

I completely lost in using the navigation stack. I have created a launch file:

  <master auto="start"/>

  <!-- Run the map server -->
  <node name="map_server" pkg="map_server" type="map_server" args="$(find navigation_for_segbot)/maps/bwi_test_world.yaml"/>

  <!--- Run AMCL -->
  <include file="$(find amcl)/examples/amcl_omni.launch" />

  <node pkg="move_base" type="move_base" respawn="false" name="move_base" output="screen">

    <rosparam file="$(find navigation_for_segbot)/params/local_costmap_params.yaml" c    <rosparam file="$(find navigation_for_segbot)/params/local_costmap_params.yaml" command="load" />
    <rosparam file="$(find navigation_for_segbot)/params/global_costmap_params.yaml" command="load" />
    <rosparam file="$(find navigation_for_segbot)/params/base_local_planner_params.yaml" command="load" />

then I tried to send goal but the robot is rotating around without actually moving anywhere:

I believe the last line of above is the error. But why??????

It seems to me that your map is not loaded correctly. MAP SIZE is 0,200. So this obviously leads to the robot to be off the costmap, as the costmaps dimension is 0 in x-direction.

Are width and height set correctly in the bwi_test_world.yaml?
