Machine files

This package provides 2 files:

  • pr2.machine : defines the machines c1 and c2 to have the addresses c1 and c2, respectively, which maps them to the PR2's computers.

  • sim.machine : defines the machines c1 and c2 to both have the address localhost.

These files are intended to be included by roslaunch files. The intended usage is:

  <include file="$(find pr2_machine)/$(env ROBOT).machine" />

The user sets the ROBOT environment variable to pr2 when working with a physical PR2, and sim when working in simulation. In this way, roslaunch files that refer to machines c1 and c2 will distribute computation appropriately on the robot, but still work on a single machine in simulation (assuming that the single machine can support the processing requirements).
