roslaunch mbs_waypoint_follower record_gps_waypoints.launch
  • On launch, instructions will be displayed on the shell on the usage of intiating and storing the GPS coordinates.
  • Once you have saved your coordinates, you may launch the execution protocol via:
roslaunch mbs_waypoint_follower gps_follow_waypoints.launch

Alternatively, you may directly run the script via:

roscd mbs_waypoint_follower/scripts

or

python move_base_gps_utm.py
