Package Description

The public fetch_drivers package is a binary only release. fetch_drivers contains both the drivers and firmware for the fetch and freight research robots. There should be no reason to use these drivers unless you're running on a fetch or a freight research robot. This package, is a cmake/make only package which installs the binaries for the drivers and firmware.

Fetch Binary Drivers

This is a public binary version of our drivers and firmware for the Fetch Research Platforms.

https://fetchrobotics.com/robotics-platforms/

We have two Fetch Research Platforms. Commonly known as Fetch and Freight. Fetch is the one with the arm. The drivers and firmware in this package are for both.

https://docs.fetchrobotics.com/

Fetch Drivers

The catkin package inside of this folder is called fetch_drivers, not fetch_binary_drivers. This is because we've previously been releasing packages which depend on fetch_drivers. We're just changing how we distribute our drivers.

About

This package should only be needed if you're using one of the Fetch Research Platforms.

Our goal is to better support our our Fetch Research Platform customers through an improved, more automated build and release process. This will get enable us to get updates out faster.

We discussed at ROSCon 2018 in a talk "Hermetic Robot Deployment Using Multi-Stage Dockers" by @levavakian & @bluryi some of our internal way of doing build/test/deployment using Docker: Video, Slides.

This public repository, is designed to consume the output of our private fetch_drivers repository and enable Fetch Research Platform users access to the drivers/firmware faster via the official ros packages.

To create the output of our private package, we have a special build job which runs inside of a docker container to ensure we don't accidentally pull in any private dependencies, and also doesn't output any of the additional commercial robot drivers.

Previously, we built our drivers on a private buildbot, and hosted them on our own packages site. We also had a manually synced mirror of the ros packages. This allowed us to ensure we tested the versions of dependancies which were on our mirror. The old process was not as automated as we would like.

We're in the process of testing ROS Melodic, and setting up our hosted stable mirror, and documenting the upgrade process to ensure Fetch Research Platform customers have a smooth transition.

We will announce to our customers when we're officially ready and supporting ROS Melodic.

See https://docs.fetchrobotics.com for more information.

  • Merge pull request #29 from moriarty/fix-build-deps [fetch_drivers] exec_depend -> build_depend I left find_package in the CMakeLists.txt for these dependencies.
  • Contributors: Alexander Moriarty, Carl Saldanha

  • Merge pull request #27 from moriarty/fetch-binary-drivers [fetch_binary_drivers] new [fetch_drivers] package
  • [fetch_drivers] add more dependencies All these dependencies are exec_dependencies because this package doesn\'t compile anything. They\'re also in the CMakeLists.txt in the catkin_package and find_package to be safe.
  • [fetch_binary_drivers] new [fetch_drivers] package This is a new package providing the \"fetch_drivers\" which was previously built internally and distributed as a binary only debian package. We will officially announce when the upgrade from Indigo->Melodic is ready. 18.04 and ROS Melodic on the Fetch Research Platforms is still being tested. The process isn\'t straight foward as there are calibration files which you will want to back-up before the upgrade. This fetch_drivers package also won\'t start like it use to because of the change from upstart to systemd. That requires fetch_system_config which will be open sourced soon. This fetch_binary_drivers package is part of a plan to distribute updates and upgrades to Fetch Research Platform customers faster in the future. This relates to fetchrobotics/fetch_ros#63

    1. An officiall announcement will be made when everything is ready.

    2. We will update and document the process on: https://docs.fetchrobotics.com/ 3. We will also announce via our mailing list, ros discourse and post on: https://opensource.fetchrobotics.com/
