For ROS 1 users looking to transition their projects to ROS 2, the entry point is often ros1_bridge. The bridge allows communication between ROS 1 and 2, enabling a gradual transition as packages are ported incrementally. Unfortunately, community experience showed that the procedure to set up the bridge is very specific and quickly becomes complex, even with built-in data types. Together with a few hidden caveats, these stumbling blocks can quickly demotivate the ROS 1 community from transitioning to ROS 2. This talk demonstrates steps to use the bridge successfully in different use cases. All examples will be publicly available.
