In this talk we’ll show the viability of using ROS2 for real-world robotics. The talk will focus on the process of creating a ROS2 platform for the DrRobot Jaguar4x4 robot (with the manipulator). We’ll discuss the open-source work done to get the robot base and manipulator working, as well as some of the challenges we encountered while doing this work. We’ll also discuss various ways of getting navigation to work in ROS2 on this base.
