2017-03-07 05:25:34 -0500 asked a question When using navigation, map and global map couldn't delete obstacles


I'm new in ROS, and I'm trying to use navigation with turtlebot.

My ROS and Ubuntu version as following:

Ubuntu: 14.04 
ROS: indigo

Question 1:

I run my launch file ($ roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_navigation.launch), and use "2D Nav Goal" of rviz to navigate, when I removed the wall of obstacle, I found the map and global map couldn't delete obstacles.

gazebo comparison

rviz comparison

How could I delete the obstacle on rviz ?

I had modified the parameters of the following file, but it's no use.


obstacle_range: 5.5
  raytrace_range: 10.0


   global_frame: /odom
   update_frequency: 20.0
   publish_frequency: 20.0
   static_map: false


   update_frequency: 20.0
   publish_frequency: 20.0

Question 2:

From the rviz map, gmapping seems not handled well in the loop closure, is there any parameters need to change ?

rviz result

My launch file and move_base configuration as following:
