I've been asked to write up a demo client program for player/stage/gazebo
that we might could use in a robotics livecd to show off the capabilities of
player. I'm still not 100% sure what exactly we're looking for, but here's
a rough description on what I'm thinking about now:
I'll design a small gui interface similar to that of playerv. Users will be
able to control the robot through this interface, using either the keyboard
or mouse (don't know which yet). If I have time/the ability to, I'll add in
support for a gripper and things like that. I'll also write up a few small
client programs that autonomously navigate the robot based on sensor data.
In the gui, the user can have to option to use one of those programs to
control the robot.
I realize the above sounds pretty similar to playerv, but I can't think of
what else to do that would meet our needs as I understand them. Any
suggestions/comments/critiques would be greatly appreciated.
+1 for this....this gui (can be done by pygtk etc) is what i suggested
at one of the previos meeting...go on...start with player first and
then add stage part into it....it'll accomplish one of the primary
goals in the p/s/g context...just tell if you need any help :)
And Tim.....i started working on gazebo and resolved some issues...yet
some build problems persists which i'm looking into...
