Emlid

Navio+ meets ROS and QT5


(Vincenzo CalabrĂ²) #1

Ehi people!

as I promised previously, here you can find a guide to how to run an image derived by the Emlid group including ROS (indigo), QT5 and a few Navio+ ready-to-go modules:

CCTRONICS: WHEN NAVIO+ MEETS ROS AND QT5

hope you will find interesting and will help you with the development of new ROS modules :smile:

Tomorrow I will receive my Navio+. Looking forward to trying your modules!

Nice, but does this work only with airships or have you used this NAVIO+ROS combo with other type of UAVs like a quadcopter?

Greetings @vincenzocalabro,

I am trying to add base packages to the ros install and have met with failure after a discouraging number of attempts using rosinstall_generator, catkin_make_isolated, etc. Even the standard catkin_make fails to get new ros packages into /opt/ros/indigo. What is your procedure to add packages?

Thanks

Jim

you should follow the raspberry ROS tutorial. The workspace directory is located in the home folder.
