Sometimes you need to clean up the task by performing a final step before the node closes. For example, when we have a hardware interface and send move commands to the wheelbase, we need to send 0 velocities after the termination of the spinning while loop to stop the robot. In python and more specifically
It is true that there are many different solutions regarding interconnectivity and interoperability for networked robots so that they will fulfil their purposes in a coordinated manner. Middleware architectures are becoming increasingly popular due to the advantages that they are capable of guaranteeing (hardware abstraction, information homogenization, easy access for the applications above, etc.). There
Recently, two very nice articles were published regarding advice how and why to become a roboticist. Ricardo Tellez wrote the first one with the title “How to become a robotics developer“. The second one was written by Víctor Mayoral Vilches with the title “How do I become a roboticist?“. Read them and follow some of
It’s nice to adopt traditional software developing tools when we work with ROS and robotics software. I think that it worths to watch the next video presented in the ROS-Industrial Consortia. Enjoy!

Please, read this page keeping its age in your mind.This mobile application constitutes an important part of this project since it is directly related to the radiation mapping visualisation. Up until now the radiation mapping is a procedure which is conducted offline. To illustrate, the operator could carry a hand

Therefore having these tools installed and working, the users could utilise packages that implement UAVs equipped with all the required features.
