Advanced ROS Network Introspection (ARNI)

Dear ROS community,

I'm pleased to announce http://wiki.ros.org/arni - a collection of tools for Advanced ROS Network Introspection.
From the wiki page:
"Advanced ROS Network Introspection (ARNI) extends the /statistics
features introduced with Indigo and completes the collected data with
measurements about the hosts and nodes participating in the network.
These are gathered from an extra node that has to run on each host
machine. All statistics or metadata can be compared against a set of
reference values using the monitoring_node. The rated statistics allow
to run optional countermeasures when a deviation from the reference is
detected, in order to remedy the fault or at least bring the system in a
safe state."

No modification of existing nodes is required in order to use the
monitoring features. Therefore, the barrier of entry is very low:
- See the arni tutorial
or
- git clone https://github.com/ROS-PSE/arni into your catkin_ws
- roslaunch arni_core init_params.launch
- start all your other nodes
- rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui
- Plugins -> Introspection -> Arni-Detail
  (Click on an item (host, node, topic or connection) in the tree view
  to get more details and graphs in the other widget)
- Enjoy out of the box distributed metadata-based monitoring

If you want to use the more advanced features in your own ROS network,
see the documentation on how to write "specifications" and "constraints".

Gazebo versions and ROS support

Hi all:

During the last ROSCon (great event and thanks to everyone for the
feedback on Gazebo) we realized that it is not always obvious for ROS
users to know which version of Gazebo they are using, which version of
Gazebo is the latest and which would the best to use in every case.

For those who are interested, we recommend reading the document "Which
combination of ROS/Gazebo to use":

 * http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=ros_wrapper_versions

Thanks.

Bridging the gap between ROS and JAUS

Hello ROS Users!

One of the questions we've heard quite often lately is how to bridge the gap between ROS and JAUS. The Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS) is an SAE International Standard for command and control of robots. A lot of people have built solutions based on ROS and need to quickly and reliably integrate those solutions using JAUS or vice versa. Previously, the learning curve to do has been difficult as there has been a lack of software to solve the problem. To assist with this problem we decided to build a software bridge between ROS and JAUS. We call it jROS and we've just finished our first cut at it!

jROS allows users to combine the power and flexibility of ROS with the maturity and robustness of the JAUS standard. The software consists of a set of ROS messages and services which are defined with respect to the JAUS message structure. This creates a 1-to-1 mapping of data in JAUS and ROS via our jROS Package. Adding the jROS topics to an existing ROS system is trivial. Once integrated, the ROS data can be exchanged with the JAUS network in a well-defined way. 

Take a closer look at jROS here: http://www.openjaus.com/products/jros

New version of micROS RT (an implementation of ROS 1.x on DDS) and its source code available

Hi everyone!

 

We’re pleased to announce that a new version of micROS RT, an implementation of ROS 1.x on DDS, is available to download. Its source code is also available now.

 

micROS RT (micROS Real-Time) is a modified ROS 1.x C++ kernel which adopts OMG's DDS (Data Distribution Systems for Realtime Systems) as its underlying message transfer protocol. It aims at providing scalable, robust and QoS-assuring message delivery capability while keeping compatibility with ROS 1.x programming paradigms.

 

The features of micROS RT include:

(1)     Built-in multicast support. Significant performance advantage can be obtained when there are n subscribers in a ROS topic (n>=2).

(2)     Robustness in some adverse network environment. As a mature and industry-level product, DDS is expected to be more robust in some adverse network environment.

(3)     QoS assurance in the message delivery process. For example, you can set the transport priority and latency budget of messages on a ROS topic. It is useful in some real-time settings involving multi nodes/robots.

(4)     Existing ROS programs can easily benefit. No modification is needed and the only thing you should do is to replace a library file in the ROS installation path.

(5)     Interoperable with the official ROS kernel. micROS RT can smartly choose the underlying message delivery protocol in virtue of the protocol negotiation mechanism.

 

In contrast with the early prototype we released three weeks ago(http://lists.ros.org/pipermail/ros-users/2014-September/068884.html), this version provide complete message QoS setting APIs. And some preliminary tests have been performed.

The binary package, source code, the user’s guide and more information can be found at http://cyberdb.github.io/micROS-RT/. We would be grateful if you can try it out and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

Bo Ding

Robot Skin Special Interest Group (SIG) Announcement

Dear ROS Community,

In recent years there have been many great developments in robotic skin and coverings. These include embedded tactile, infrared, temperature, and accelerometer elements among others. Several projects have made considerable contributions to developing full body multi-modal skin sensors. This increased activity is exciting for the robotic skin community and it makes standardization of methods and procedures increasingly important.

Although there is vast experience in the area of robotic skin research, there is a lack of common tools and common standards in robot middleware and robot simulators.

To address the need for common tools and interfaces in ROS and Gazebo, and the larger need for standardization of communication, display, and message formats etc. we propose forming a Robot Skin Special Interest Group (SIG) within the ROS community to openly discuss and collaboratively solve some of these issues.

We have created an initial page for the SIG at http://wiki.ros.org/sig/RobotSkin and the corresponding Google group at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ros-sig-robot-skin.

Please consider joining the Robot Skin SIG and contribute to the discussions!

Best Regards, 
Isura

ROS Development Survey

Hello ROS users!

Clearpath Robotics, an early adopter of ROS, is working with the Open
Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF) to determine how the worldwide ROS
development community can best be supported. This may be via support
services, resources, or tools offered by the OSRF or community
members. Now is your opportunity to let us know what you need and how
Clearpath and OSRF can work together to best support you.
Please take a moment to complete this short survey:

Re: ros-users mailing list volume

Hi Everyone,


I'd like to please repeat the request that we keep discussions of ROS 2.0 on the ros-sig-ng-ros mailing list. It is true that ROS 2.0 is an important topic for the whole community and I highly encourage everyone in the community to be involved and join the SIG mailing list. Everyone's participation is important.


The ros-sig-ng-ros mailing list is not a trivial number of subscribers at 126 and all these people have demonstrated interest in participating in the process. Joining a SIG mailing list takes less time than writing a well thought out reply to the discussion.


The reason we are using the separate SIG is such that we can have the discussions there in the open in a place which anyone can choose to opt in. Although it is important to make these topics and discussions visible to the entire community we must respect the people who do not have time to follow the ins and outs of every detailed discussion. The ros-users mailing list is the best way to reach the entire ROS community and if the volume of emails gets too high people will drop their subscription or start automatically filtering the emails. The strongest piece of feedback that we get at OSRF about ros-users is that it's too high volume and that people have unsubscribed or automatically filtered it out of their inbox because they do not have time to keep up. This feedback has come from a large range of people including students just learning ROS, to people who work full time on robots using ROS.


From July's metrics report we have 1758 ros-users subscribers (including people automatically filtering the messages in their email client) but we have 8572 users on answers.ros.org and 49,153 unique IPs. Using active IPs as a lower bound on the number of users that indicates that ros-users has a maximum penetration of 3.6% of all ROS users. As ros-users is our main channel for communicating with the greater ROS community we would like the level of subscribership to be notably higher.


Keeping the above statistics in mind, we suggest that when starting a new conversation, first start it on a SIG mailing list. If at any point you determine a wider audience might be interested, send a short notice email to ros-users inviting people to join the conversation if they are interested. Google groups allows you to subscribe to particular threads of a mailing list only, allowing you to pick the email threads which interest you. Finally, if any consensus or proposal is reached on the SIG mailing list, the conclusion can be summarized on ros-users.


It has been suggested to generate high level summaries of the SIGs periodically for posting to ros-users <at> . Unfortunately Google Groups does not provide API access to google groups we can use to automate this process. If anyone knows a way we can set this up that would be great, please contact me.


Please keep these goals in mind when choosing where to post. Although it would be great if everyone could participate in all the discussions in detail please recognize that many people's inboxes are overflowing and we don't want to push them away. For reference to read this one message (approximately 600 words, and assuming average reading speed of 300 wpm) will take an average reader around 2 minutes. This will take the subscriber list 58.6 hours to read collectively. The recent discussions on the ROS and Web Clients discussion is ~ 5000 words which will take ~16 minutes per person to read through. Across the whole ROS community will cost the community 488 hours, the equivalent of 3 months of an individual's work. Obviously these communications are important and need to happen, but we need to understand that not everyone can devote a significant fraction of their inbox processing time to ROS discussions and we don't want to push them to leave our main communication channel where we can send out important updates and community announcements.

ROS Vagrant base boxes

Hello All,

I'm very pleased to announce a set of vagrant virtual box base boxes, we have been working on at shadow robot, are now available on the cloud for public consumption.

https://vagrantcloud.com/shadowrobot

You need vagrant 1.5+ to use these. On trusty bring up a new ros machine like so:

apt-get install vagrant
mkdir indigovm
cd indigovm
vagrant init shadowrobot/ros-indigo-desktop-trusty64
vagrant up

After a bit a logged in desktop will appear, just open a terminal, roscore and away you go.

Currently we have Hydro and Indigo machines in 32bit and 64bit variants.

These are built using vagrant and ansible as part of our build tools project (more on this next week).
https://github.com/shadow-robot/sr-build-tools/blob/master/vagrant/ros-base/README.md
Feel free to log issues, ideas there or post here.

Collaboration welcome especially creating bases for other providers.

Have fun,
Mark Pitchless
