Thread: I robot create 2 driver installation confusion

  1. I robot create 2 driver installation confusion

    Installed driver for Irobot Create 2 from here. I am a little stuck though. I was expecting a GUI or a place to input commands and not really sure what to do next. https://github.com/MirkoFerrati/irobotcreate2ros

    I run

    rosrun irobotcreate2 irobotcreate2

    and get:


    [ INFO] [1466316801.213298743]: Roomba for ROS 2.01
    [ INFO] [1466316801.350324458]: Connected to Roomba.
    [ INFO] [1466316801.451156961]: Waiting for roomba sensors

    The tutorial says:

    rosrun irobotcreate2 irobotcreate2

    to run the basic software and have access to the following topics:


    /battery
    /bumper
    /buttons
    /cliff
    /cmd_vel
    /digit_leds
    /ir_bumper
    /ir_character
    /leds
    /mode
    /odom
    /play_song
    /rosout
    /rosout_agg
    /song
    /tf
    /wheel_drop
    you can read sensors (/battery, /buttons, /bumper, ...) and send commands (/cmd_vel, ...).

    No idea what to do with these commands without a UI. Any help would be much obliged. First time ROS user..

    That is a list of topics you can subscribe from or publish data to. I recommend you look at some of the ROS tutorials for getting started:
    http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials

    Many published messages can be visualized with RViz ( rosrun rviz rviz ).
