1. Overview


This package contains the node that subscribes to /joy messages and publishes command messages for the robot platform including speed level control. The joystick output is feed to a mux ( so that the final command to the robot can be set by different components (move_base, etc.)

The node allows to load different types of joysticks (PS4, PS3, Logitech, Thrustmaster). New models can be easily added by creating new .yaml files. If modbus_io node is available, the digital outputs (ligths, axes, etc.) can also be controlled with the pad. If ptz camera is available, the pan-tilt-zoom can also be commanded with the pad.
