Turtlebot quick bringup

Setup the turtlebot and workstation according to the Wiki

Quick start

Turtlebot side

  roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch

You can then check the status of robot with:

  rqt -s kobuki_dashboard


Make it move with you damn keyboard !

  roslaunch turtlebot_teleop keyboard_teleop.launch

Markers Teleop

You should probably do this on your computer, not on the embedded laptop. It works though…

  roslaunch turtlebot_interactive_markers interactive_markers.launch

This one, definitely not on the eLaptop

  roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_robot.launch

Check the “interactive markers” box, click on interact and play with your turtlebot !

3DSensor/Kinect start

On the embedded laptop

  roslaunch turtlebot_bringup 3dsensor.launch

On the laptop, or another (more powerful) workstation

  roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_robot.launch

Common issues

  • Network connection: try ping between embedded laptop and workstation
  • Adresses: Check variables ROS_MASTER_URI and ROS_HOSTNAME on each computer, see: Official Wiki.
    • Actually ROS_MASTER_URI is the only one that's important…
  • rqt throws: qt_gui_main() found no plugin matching "kobuki_dashboard", run a rqt --force-discover
