This tutorial shows how to launch the gmapping simulation in the workstation in order to build a real-time map
All examples are independent. Please be aware that your previous demonstration has to be stopped before starting a new one
Build your map with Gmapping
To launch the Gmapping simulation type the following instruction in a new terminal:
$ roslaunch minilab_demo_simulation minilab_demo_gmapping.launch
Gazebo and RViz will be opened both in another window. The real time map will be built and displayed in RViz while moving the robot with keyboard keys.
Figure 1 : Your Mini-Lab simulated in Gazebo
Figure 2 : Map built by Gmapping displayed in Rviz
CTRL+C in your terminal to stop this example.
All demonstrations are independent, you have to stop this demonstration before starting a new one.
