Need help with ROS

Hi Guys,

I’m building an Autonomous bot using a LiDar. I am not using wheel encoders so I have no odometry data. I read a few articles and hector_slam seems to do the mapping an localization without the odometry. I am able to see the map in rviz.

I’m Using a raspberry pi to control the motor driver. ROS is running on my PC.

My question is how to proceed forward with this now. How to use this map data and actually make the robot decide and plan a path? Can i use this data in a python code and use pyserial to talk to my RaspberryPi from PC. If yes, then how?

Thanks in Advance.
