In this tutorial, we will bring up the turtlebot in the Gazebo simulator. This tutorial assumes you have completed TurtleBot Installation.
The following command starts the turtlebot in the simulated world
$ roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch
- Note that Gazebo may update its model database when it is started for the first time. This may take a few minutes.
- If your terminal is not already pre-configured with the ROS environment variables, you need to set them in each new terminal you open. Just execute this command *before* you execute any other ROS commands:
$ source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash
