ROS (robot operating system)
The ROS stack for hooking up to the pioneer
I (anna) haven't gotten this to work because of my usb issues, but according to Jonathan, when you do:
$ rosrun p2os_driver p2os
if you get an error like
P2OS connection opening serial port /dev/ttyS0...
this command should fix it:
$ rosparam set p2os/port /dev/ttyUSB0
updated 19 apr
point cloud library
after starting the p2os driver and everything, you can control the robot via keyboard with:
$ roslaunch p2os_launch teleop_keyboard.launch

currently we don't think we have any sensor transforms
tf references a "world frame" -- is this our map?
