The python_ethernet_rmp package contains the drivers for interfacing to a Segway RMP via an Ethernet connection.


To install the python_ethernet_rmp package, you can choose to either install from source, or from the Ubuntu package:


To install from source, execute the following:

  •    1 cd /path/to/your/catkin/workspace/src
       2 git clone https://github.com/WPI-RAIL/python_ethernet_rmp.git
       3 cd /path/to/your/catkin/workspace
       4 catkin_make 
       5 catkin_make install

Ubuntu Package

To install the Ubuntu package, execute the following:

  • sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-python-ethernet-rmp


This file located in the package contains all of the system defines for the RMP. This can gives max and min values for all of the parameters as well as some system configuration option. Some of these defines are also listed in the 'segway_msgs/RMPCommand' message type used to set parameters or sent commands to the RMP.
