turtlebot autonomous navigation with multiple goals

Hi, I have got the turtlebot to navigate autonomously using the turtlebot tutorials. I was wondering if there is any package/tutorial out there to make the turtlebot handle multiple goals. For example, first go to goal #1, then goal#2 and so on. I assume this would not be possible using rviz and that I would have to write my own trajectory planner etc., For this, I was hoping to get hold of the source code that rviz uses and then modify it to suit my needs. Is there a way I can get the code (for sending a navigation goal and autonomously navigating there) used in rviz? Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm working on a similar project. Did you ever get this going? If you did, would you share your solution?

You can write your own node to program it. You might find move_base package documentation useful to achieve that :

@Lucile's answer is what I would recomend but to directly answer your question. rviz's source can be found at:

You might want to check out. This helps to navigate around multiple poses.

With this package you can both click on RViz for intermediate goals or pass them in a YAML file. Also you can make both a sequence of goals or an infinitely repeated loop.
