Kalman Filter - Local Computer

I am willing to run the simulation provided for Kalman Filter course in my local PC. My os is Ubuntu 18.04 and Ros distro is Melodic
I have downloaded the project files. But It is not working correctly. when I am trying to run roslaunch kalman_filter launch_auxiliary_nodes.launch, it is giving me errors like

[INFO] [1608330989.930892]: Loading model XML from file /home/marzan/kalman_ws/src/kalman_filter/models/brick_box_3x1x3/model.sdf

When I have checked rostopic list, I have found some topics are publishing here. I am really confused about the necessary steps to overcome this situation. It would be really helpful for me if someone suggest me about the necessary steps.


Turtlebot simulations is quite messy to install locally I’m affraid, ist a robot that is used a lot but had very little to no support and code cleaning.

I woudl suggest to Cretae a ROSject and install it there, it will be much easier because all the dependencies will be there already.
You can also try to download the melodic branch we have fro turtlebot:

git clone https://bitbucket.org/theconstructcore/turtlebot.git
cd turtlebot; git checkout kinetic-gazebo9
