Package Summary

The nj_oa_costmap package is a navigating jockey for the Large Maps framework. Its role is to drive the robot forward while avoiding obstacles. It uses a local map which position is relative to the robot but which orientation is constant.

The nj_oa_costmap package implements a navigating jockey for the Large Maps Framework (LaMa) that drives the robot while avoiding obstacles. It is based on a local map (nav_msgs/OccupancyGrid). The local map has a fixed position relative to the robot but its orientation is constant in the world reference frame. It is a reactive, memory-less jockey.

Implemented action:

Moreover, the package provides the class TwistHandler that computes an appropriate geometry_msgs/Twist from a nav_msgs/OccupancyGrid in order to go as forward as possible while avoiding obstacles.
