Send Navigation Commands Programmatically Open Class
What you will learn in this Open Class
You probably know how to send navigation goals to your robot using Rviz. But how can you control the navigation goals of a robot from within your own program?
In this live class, we will learn how to build simple Python programs to set the initial location of the robot in the map, and send the robot to a given location through the ROS Navigation stack. We will start from an already working navigation system with a ROSbot (map included, localization running and move based configured). Then we will build our own program that sends goals to move the robot around the space autonomously, without having to manually interact with it
Robot used: ROSbot
