Udev Rules

Description: Setting up udev rules to find kobuki at /dev/kobuki.

Keywords: kobuki, udev

Tutorial Level: BEGINNER

Next Tutorial: Examine Kobuki

Connection to the kobuki base is via usb enabled by an ftdi usb-serial converter which is always pre-flashed at the factory with the serial id kobuki. For convenience, to enable the device to appear on /dev/kobuki, use the following script to copy across the udev rule and restart udev (you'll need your sudo password):

> rosrun kobuki_ftdi create_udev_rules

Non ROS users

In case you are not in a ROS environment, you will need to build the package first, in order to get the create_udev_rules script.

To do so navigate to the package folder and do

> make udev
