First steps with ROS… MyzharBot moves its tracks!
Here is the video of the first “steps” made by MyzharBot under ROS. In the last days I wrote down the code for the rosnode that will provide motor control: robocontroller_node. Using the “turtle_teleop_key” node, included in ROS, I tested that the communication between ROS and RoboController board was ok… and … Continue reading
Migration to ROS is ongoing…
As mentioned in the previous post, MyzharBot is migrating to ROS. One of the first step to realize was the porting of the interface to the RoboController board using modbus protocol. Well, it is ready! The rosnode that will perform the Motion Control of the Robot is able to connect to … Continue reading
A new evolution step: ROS
Writing and writing C++ code for the servers and the clients that allow to MyzharBot to move I had always in mind the possibility to migrate toward ROS. ROS is something similar to an operating system written to control every kind of robot, but it is not a real operating … Continue reading
