Newly proposed, mistyped, or obsolete package. Could not find package "jackal_msgs" in rosdoc: /home/rosbot/docs/api/jackal_msgs/manifest.yaml

Notes

These messages are the low-level interface between Jackal's ARM MCU and integrated PC. Most users of Jackal should be able to use standard ROS interfaces (eg. geometry_msgs/Twist, diagnostics) to command and monitor the robot. Possible exceptions are:

  • If you wish to disable diff_drive_controller and command the motors directly to the MCU.

  • To programmatically monitor system state such as voltage, current, battery, faults, etc.
