Overview

http://wiki.ros.org/nanotron_swarm?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=nanoPAN_DK

This package is part of the ROS stack rangeonly_driver. It provides a driver for Nanotron range-only sensors based on Swarm API firmware. The ROS driver has been developed at the University of Seville in the Robotics, Vision and Control research group (GRVC). This driver also provides a custom ROS message for range-only sensors (see message rangeonly_msgs/P2PRange on package rangeonly_msgs).

This package is part of the ROS stack rangeonly_driver. It provides a driver for Nanotron range-only sensors based on Swarm API firmware. The ROS driver has been developed at the University of Seville in the Robotics, Vision and Control research group (GRVC). This driver also provides a custom ROS message for range-only sensors (see message nanotron_swarm/P2PRange of this rosbuild package).

In the case of Nanotron devices, these devices are based on the Time of Flight of radio signals to measure the distance between a pair of devices.

Applications

Examples of usage of this driver can be found in:

Nodes

nanotron_swarm

nanotron_swarm takes the ranging data from usb-serial interface and transforms it in P2PRange ROS messages. The node uses the swarm API firmware which consist on a serial port API.

Published Topics

range (rangeonly_msgs/P2PRange)
  • The range-only mesaurements.
