In this tutorial, I explain the math and theory of robot localization and I will solve an example of Markov localization.
Most of the wheeled robots in ROS use move_base to move the robot. move_base geometry model is based on differential drive which basically transforms a velocity command (twist message) into a command for rotating the left and the right wheels at a different speed which enable the car to turn into the right or left or goes straight. But cars …
Two wheels differential drive robot (with two caster wheels). List of installed sensors: • Velodyne VLP-16. • Velodyne HDL-32E. • Hokuyo Laser scanner. • IMU. • Microsoft Kinect/Asus Xtion Pro. • RGB Camera. You can manually control the robot with Joystick controller for mapping robot environment. Autonomous navigation is possible by setting goal pose.
