Launch files

  • launch/view_navigation.launch
    • Used for visualising the turtlebot while building a map or navigating with the ros navistack.
  • launch/view_robot.launch
    • Used for visualising turtlebot in action. It requires minimal.launch and optionally 3dsensor.launch to already be up and running.
  • launch/view_navigation_app.launch
    • Used for visualising the turtlebot while building a map or navigating with the ros navistack. Use this version of view_navigation.launch whenever the navigation related topics lay inside an application namespace (that is, navigation was launched by the app manager).
  • launch/view_model.launch
    • Standalone launcher used for visualising urdf models. == Testing Model Views == Test the robot descriptions via the turtlebot_viz/turtlebot_rviz_launchers and reconfiguring your environment variables. == Turtlebot 2 == This is the default, so you don't need to set the variables, but for purposes of illustration, it is shown below. > export TURTLEBOT_BASE=kobuki > export TURTLEBOT_STACKS=hexagons > export TURTLEBOT_3D_SENSOR=kinect > roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_model.launch == Turtlebot 1 == > export TURTLEBOT_BASE=create > export TURTLEBOT_STACKS=circles > export TURTLEBOT_3D_SENSOR=kinect > roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_model.launch == Switch 3d Sensor == Switch the 3d sensor from the kinect to the asus xtion pro: > export TURTLEBOT_3D_SENSOR=asus_xtion_pro > roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_model.launch
  • launch/view_blind_nav.launch
    • Used for visualising the turtlebot navigating locally only with bumpers and cliff sensors.
