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.
