Robot State Publisher vs Joint State Publisher Open Class
What you will learn in this Open Class
Robot State Publisher, Joint State Publisher, Joint States... you know all those confusing topics that we usually mix and confuse one for another. From this class, that confusion is going to disappear!!!
Those are basic concepts of ROS Control.
Join us on the 55th ROS Developers Live class to learn what is the difference between Robot State Publisher and Joint State Publisher, when to use one or the other, and how to use it to control a robot, using Rviz and Gazebo simulation.
You will also learn what is the difference between having the simulation of the robot, or just having the Rviz showing the joint states.
A super-complete Live Class about one of the most confusing topics.
By the end of this Live Class you will understand: * What is Robot State Publisher * What is the role of the /joint_states topic * What is the Joint State Publisher * When to use Rviz to visualize the joint states and when to use Gazebo
Robots used in this class: * Pi robot: http://www.pirobot.org/ros/
