Navigation, Path Planning & Control Using amcl Package

Navigation, Path Planning & Control Using amcl Package

In the previous lesson, we understood what localization, mapping, and SLAM mean in Robotics, we also launched the Turtlebot3 gmapping package in Gazebo, and drew a global map using the robot's LIDAR (localization + mapping). turtlebot3 gmapping package In this lesson in the series of lessons on ROS tutorials, we will first understand what navigation, path planning, and control mean in robotics. Then, we will launch the navigation package (amcl package) in Gazebo to localize a robot during motion. Afterward, we will set an autonomous motion for a robot starting from the initial pose to the target pose using RVIZ.…

Localization, Mapping & SLAM Using gmapping Package

In the previous lesson, we downloaded the turtlebot3 simulation package, launched Gazebo and tried to understand its different features and files, and played with an actual robotics turtle. Turtlebot3 Gazebo Simulation In this lesson in the series of lessons on ROS tutorials, we will understand what localization, mapping, and SLAM mean in Robotics, we will also launch the Turtlebot3 gmapping package in Gazebo, and draw a global map using the robot's LIDAR (localization + mapping). turtlebot3 gmapping package The table of contents for the entire course: https://www.mecharithm.com/what-is-robot-operating-system-ros/ Full disclaimer: Some of the links on this page are affiliate links.

Turtlebot3 Gazebo Simulation

In the previous lesson, we became familiar with ROS Parameter Server, what it was, and how you could manipulate it via the terminal and in written code, as well as creating, recording, playing, and reading ROS Bags. ROS Parameter Server In this lesson in the series of lessons on ROS tutorials, we will download the turtlebot3 simulation package, launch Gazebo and try to understand its different features and files, and play with an actual robotics turtle.
