Hi guys, anyone knows how I can stream sweep data into Hector slam to construct a live mapping?
I have successfully installed ROS Kinetic onto my notebook and built the sweep-ros package. I do not have odometry or a robot and hence why I am using Hector slam.
I followed the steps on this website, https://hackaday.io/project/7284-oscar-omni-service-cooperative-assistant-robot/log/26164-first-foray-into-ros, but when I roslaunch tutorial.launch, I keep getting "Global Status: Fixed Frame No tf data. Actual Error:Fixed Frame [map] does not exist and there is no map or data capturing,
I also followed the tutorial on this website, http://wiki.ros.org/hector_slam, but same issue persist.
I run "rosrun tf view_frames" and I get a pdf file that states "no tf data received".
I am still quite new to ROS. Can anyone please advice me on how I can do a live mapping with Hector SLAM using Sweep?
Your assistance in this matter will be deeply appreciated. Thank you!
