thanks, done

2016-06-03 09:32:52 -0500 asked a question Costmap plan error using frontier_exploration with DWA planner

I am attempting to use the frontier_exploration package to have a turtlebot explore a map in simulation. I have a launch file which starts a map_server, gazebo, move_base for the turtlebot and RViz. This works fine and I can successfully explore the map by tele-operating the turtlebot. However when I attempt to use the frontier_exploration package to explore the map the node crashes with errors :-

[ERROR] [1464960560.742352772, 20146.057000000]: None of the 0 first of 0 (0) points of the global plan were in the local costmap and free

[ERROR] [1464960568.751631322, 20154.067000000]: Failed to move

Looking at the Local Map->Cost Cloud for the DWA Planner in RViz it looks as if this is being populated incorrectly (see the multicoloured square around the turtlebot). Could this be the source of the problem causing the frontier_exploration node to crash?
