"Deterministic" navigation in ROS

If the standard is closed-source, doesn’t have huge traction already, and doesn’t have any open-source implementations, it’s hard for me to get excited about it.

I don’t mean to be dismissive or flippant, but it’s just hard to see the value of it when we can’t see it, or anything that uses it. But maybe I’m missing something obvious.

I feel exactly the same way, which is why I’ve never bothered with the IEEE maps standard.

Thank you all for your insights. This is really valuable for us. I have the same feeling that I read in your messages. However, at the same time, I did not find alternative solutions yet. So the only alternative I have at the moment is defining and implementing our own “standard”.
