Multi Robot Workstation Setup
- Scalable and robust connectivity over wifi between all machines involved. Some ROS specific tools to monitor machines on the network.
- Setting up appropriate topics and namespaces for all machines on the network.
- Automatic discovery of workstations and robots on the network. Informing relevant nodes to take action when these units become available.
Daniel Stonier has a zeroconf stack that should do this, and I should shortly be able to update this page as to whether it is sufficient.
My main goal over the next few months is to develop this infrastructure along with our robots to achieve a robust large-scale multi-robot platform.
