thx alot for this book
this book obviously encourage me to jump into ROS and make my bot ROSified within very short time.
but still, as a beginner in ROS, i still have something out of my mind.
let’s say, i have intel realsense on hand, and that cheap ¥1000 chinese YDLidar, they come with handy ROS driver as u mentioned in this book. going with that D415 or D435 is still a nice way to go for the upcoming years unless someday velodyne offers us super sale discount at $500.
how about motor controller? i only know to plug them all to USB port. sure, i do have the protocol or AT command to send command or query for some info. in short, i can make those motors move, spinning, even from the shell, as easy as accessing the ttyUSB0 (for example), and send the text command, and done. or just read it the replied info to get some information.
but what should i do next with this unROSified controller?
where should i write all of these AT commands?
or should i stick with only ROSified controller such as roboteq?
well, not many options left
at least for now.
i have visited many forums, googling for days, reading your book also, but still no idea how to deal with the unROSified controllers.
so far i only found… ROSserial
yup… “connect the controller to arduino and use ROSserial, then connect that arduino to your PC”
if u don’t mind, would u please give me a clue where should i go next?
that would be a big help for me to get my bot ROSified and start with confident to enter the ROS jungle and sure… start my journey.
anyway, this book is really great for me and anyone who want to jump to ROS. it’s really clear on describing ROS and encourage ppl like me to place bet on ROS
thx alot for creating this book. even u r really nice for translating this book into chinese.
perhaps someday i will have chance to treat u guys for some beer and let my bot serve us on the beach.
