This tutorial assumes that you have started rocon_app_manager with Pairing, previous tutorial.



Install rocon_remocon to use rocon_remocon and rqt_remocon

  > sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rocon-remocon ros-indigo-rocon-apps

Interaction Configuration

This is interaction configuration for QT teleop. It configures PC GUI to start, its role, paired app to be started in robot, and others. Please check Interaction Specification for more details. Note that there are example interactions included in pairing.interactions in rocon_app_manager_tutorials.

Also note that, QT remocon can start global executable, roslaunch, and rosrunable applications.
