Abstract—The paper presents the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, and implement a path-planning for the movement of Omni-directional self-driving robots based on the navigation stack. The virtual environment consists of known static obstacles and unknown dynamic obstacles, the mobile robot is required to achieve both local obstacle-avoidance and follow the global path during the moving process. All tasks have been performed on a four-wheeled Omnidirectional robot with Jetson TX2 high-performance processor for central processing tasks, an Astra depth camera and a RPlidar sensor. The achieved results show the efficiency, research direction of using Robot Operating System for controlling and monitoring autonomous robots, self-driving cars as well as developing intelligent robot systems.
