Ned ROS documentation¶
Before diving into the software’s documentation, you can learn more about the robot development in the Overview section.
Then, you should check the Getting Started section to setup your environment and try out the stack by yourself. If you don’t have a real robot at your disposal, you can still simulate it via the Use Niryo robot through simulation section.
Ned Control via ROS¶
Ned is fully based on ROS.
ROS Direct control¶
To control the robot directly with ROS, you will need either to be connected in SSH to the physical robot, or to use the simulation.
ROS is the most direct way to control the robot. It allows you to:
- Send commands via the terminal in order to call services, trigger actions, …
- Write an entire Python/C++ node to realize a full process.
See ROS section to see all Topic & Services available.
Python ROS Wrapper¶
To use Python ROS Wrapper, you will need either to be connected in SSH to the physical robot, or to use the simulation.
The Python ROS Wrapper is built on top of ROS to allow a faster development than ROS. Programs are run directly on the robot which allows to trigger them with the robot’s button once a computer is no longer needed.
See Python ROS Wrapper to see which functions are accessible and examples on how to use them.
