## AMCL Navigation Test

The following will demonstrate the AMCL navigation operation using rplidar a2 as the scan input and the map file created in Tutorial 14 as the global map.

### 1 preparations

Install and upgrade nav_test, laser_filters package first.

1.1 ssh login Xiaoqiang host and cd to Xiaoqiang's ros workspace

ssh xiaoqiang@192.168.xxx.xxx -X
cd Documents/ros/src/


1.2 Update upgrade package

cd  laser_filters
git stash
git pull
cd ..
cd nav_test
git stash
git pull
cd ..
cd ..
catkin_make


1.3 Update the Xiaoqiang hosts file and the hosts file of the local virtual machine so that Xiaoqiang and the local virtual machine can communicate with each other. Refer to sections 1.A and 1.B in Tutorial 13.

### 2.Start navigation node

First, copy the two map files created in Tutorial 14 to /home/xiaoqiang/Documents/ros/src/nav_test/maps/, overwrite the files with the same name.

roslaunch nav_test xiaoqiang_a2_demo_amcl.launch


Normally there will be similar results in the figure below, while the lidar starts to rotate

### 3 Start rviz

3.1 Start rviz in the local virtual, select the open nav_test/config/xiaoqiang_amcl.rviz configuration file in the work directory of Xiaoqiang ros

export ROS_MASTER_URI=http://xiaoqiang-desktop:11311
rviz


3.2 After waiting for a few seconds, rviz will normally have a screen similar to the one below.

### 4.Start navigation test

4.1 In rviz, use 2D Pose Estimation to set the position of the initial pose of the robot in the map. Because the AMCL algorithm needs a more accurate initial value, the actual position of the robot in the map can be further matched by the current liadr scanning dot matrix.

4.2 Using 2D Nav Goal in rviz to release targets to Xiaoqiang

4.3 Xiaoqiang began to move autonomously to the designated location
