Welcome to SynTouch's new ROS package st_biotac. SynTouch is currently developing this package to process BioTac data collected from supported hardware (such as st_cheetah).
For more information visit: SynTouch Website
Package Summary (temp)
This package contains all messages specific to the SynTouch stack, configuration of data acquisition hardware, as well as the future home for other useful tools for programming with the BioTacs (such as a GUI, data saving utilities, and other functions relevant to the status of the BioTac).

GUI for visualizing BioTac data
Data saving tools for exporting to CSV
INSERT ROS API FIGURE
biotacs/<port_name>: the BioTac data coming from the specified port (i.e. a port named "left_hand" would have the topic name" biotacs/left_hand). Each sample appears as a new message for compatibility across different hardware. The configuration properties of each port are described below.
BioTac_Port_Data: data published from supported acquisition hardware port. It contains:
- The time at which samples were taken in ROS time.
The name of the sample channel collected (can be "Pac", "Pdc", "Tac", "Tdc", or En where n represents the electrode number, see the BioTac wiki page for additional details)
Contains an array of integers of BioTac measurements. The length of the array is equal to the number of BioTacs supported by the hardware. Values range from 0 to 4095 for connected BioTacs; -1 is passed for BioTacs that are not connected or the data is corrupted during transmission (i.e. has bad parity).
