About

The robot_pose_publisher package contains a ROS node that will publish the transform between the /base_link frame and the /map frame as a pose message. This information is useful if you are interested in the robots position but do not want to stream the entire TF tree to get this information. An example use case is for web widgets.

Nodes

robot_pose_publisher

robot_pose_publisher publishes the transform between the /base_link frame and the /map frame.

Published Topics

  • The current transform between the /base_link frame and the /map frame as a pose message.
