The ROS stack for hooking up to the pioneer. Here is an example of our robot using ROS and the navigation system: http://youtu.be/f3Iu2t0d3xo

Installing

Open a terminal in the git repository.

robotlab/ros/bin/setup-ros.bash

Control with Keyboard

After starting the p2os driver and everything, you can control the robot via keyboard with:

$ roslaunch p2os_launch teleop_keyboard.launch

To get p2os_teleop working: http://answers.ros.org/question/11417/datatypemd5sum-error-with-p2os_teleop
