Interactive control for generic Twist-based robots using interactive markers

Cannot load information on name: interactive_marker_twist_server, distro: kinetic, which means that it is not yet in our index. Please see this page for information on how to submit your repository to our index.

Overview

The purpose of this package is to provide a basic generic marker server for teleoperation of twist-based robots, particularly simple differential drive bases. Examples of such platforms include TurtleBot, Husky, and Kingfisher.

API

marker_server

Serve interactive markers for control of a robot drive base.

Published Topics

~cmd_vel (geometry_msgs/Twist)
  • Command velocity messages arising from markers usage. Messages are not published when the markers are idle.

Parameters

~link_name (str, default: /base_link)
  • Name of frame to attach the markers to; typically will be base_link or base_footprint.
~robot_name (str, default: robot)
  • Single-word name for the robot, to use in labelling the controller.
~marker_size_scale (double, default: 1.0)
  • Scale the size of the markers, for platforms especially large or small.
