Interactive computing is coming to ROS: The Jupyter Notebook is well-known in data science as a means to explore datasets and create immediate, interactive visualizations. We are trying to make the new JupyterLab IDE a more productive environment for ROS developers with specialized widgets: the jupyter-ros package offers RViz-like interactive 3D robot visualizations, as well as tools to make message sending, topic subscribing and live plotting more convenient. On top of that, we will demonstrate using the JupyterLab as a Cloud Robotics IDE and the Jupyter voilá toolkit to turn notebooks into standalone web applications.
