I am beginner in ROS.

I have a differential drive mobile robot.

I want to use robot_localization package to estimate robot velocity and position from IMU and odometry.

I just download robot_localization package, but I can not use it.

$   rostopic list


My problem is how to make a launch file to use this package to estimate robot velocity and position from IMU and odometry?

and what is its location in the ~/catkin_ws?

Any parameters and configuration of the robot localization package can be found here

Robot Localization Wiki: (http://docs.ros.org/melodic/api/robot_localization/html/index.html)

On the page (Preparing Your Data for Use with robot_localization) and (Configuring robot_localization) you'll find everything that you need to use the robot_localization package correctly.
