What is the best way to simulate it in Gazebo so Turtblebot is able to follow that path that is generated in Matlab. I was thinking to send coordinates to Gazebo and callback them back to Matlab...I'm new to ROS so I'm not sure what tools to use to do that.Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:34:55 -0500http://answers.gazebosim.org/question/17311/how-to-simulate-path-via-matlab-in-gazebo/Comment by 4uvak91 for <p>I have A* start algorithm in matlab that gives me a certain path from point A to B.

http://answers.gazebosim.org/question/17311/how-to-simulate-path-via-matlab-in-gazebo/?answer=17350#post-id-17350If you are using ROS with a simulated turtle bot, then you could start here:
http://wiki.ros.org/turtlebot_simulator
A* is a global planner, and in order to drive the turtle you'll need to map the global plan to command velocities. The [ROS Move Base](http://wiki.ros.org/move_base) package could help you out. There is also [Turtlebot Navigation](http://wiki.ros.org/turtlebot_navigation).
