Rviz Issue

December 28, 2020 at 9:42am
Hello Navigation testing is in progress and the actual vehicle position does not match on the rviz. I am using the Autonomous Navigation.
roslaunch mushr_base teleop.launch roslaunch mushr_pf real.launch roslaunch mushr_rhc_ros real.launch rviz
I am using the command above. The attached file is a video of the rviz screen. The vehicles are moving in numerical order.

Hi (jakhome1) - It looks like the car is in the correct position in the last image you posted. Are you saying that once the car starts moving, the particle filter no longer predicts the correct position? Also, have you tuned your car's odometry parameters according to this tutorial:
During one round of the track, the particle filter continues to hold a strange position and only recognizes the last part accurately. When the vehicle is moving, the particle filter will not normally predict the correct position. I've tuned the value by referring to this site and I'll try tuning it again.
I see, let us know if re-tuning helps at all

There is a problem even after tuning. The same symptoms continue to occur.

Hey (jakhome1) it's not clear what the source of the problem is from the images. Could you provide similar images but with /car/pf/viz/particles visualized?

Which command should I use? Can I use rostopic echo?
