The navigation stack is one of the core components of the ROS Ecosystem. This talk will present lessons learned from maintaining the navigation stack over the past five years, and discuss a new generation of interfaces for increased functionality. This talk will cover: the new nav_core2 interfaces, with a new Costmap interface; the locomotor package which replaces move_base and demonstrates new functionality; and ROS 2.0 + Navigation.
