jsk_network_tools

Limited Network Communication.

The goal of silverhammer is to provide communication between two different ROS networks over limited network.

Currently jsk_network_tools supports two types of limited network model:

  1. Unidirectional and narrow network.
  2. Unidirectional and broad but intermittent network.

These two models are strongly inspired by DRC-final.

Problem of communication over limited network

The problems of 'limited network' are:

  1. narrow bandwidth
  2. intermittent connection

There problems cause following issues:

  • Hand-shaking is high cost.

Any kind of hand-shaking takes much time for example TCP hand-shaking and ROS node hand-shaking. * Re-sending is high cost.

Any kind of re-sending packets takes much time and consumes bandwidth for example TCP re-sending. * Re-connection is high cost.

Over intermittent connection, we need to re-connect over and over times. If bandwidth is narrow, hand-shaking is high cost mentioned above and re-connection is much high cost.

Because of these problems, we cannot use rich and well-designed communication tool such as ROS and ZMQ.

Approach towards communication over limited network

jsk_network_tools' approach for the problems is quite simple.

  • Use USP with fixed and periodic rate to remove hand-shaking of connection.
  • For narrow band network, compress message as small as possible
  • For broad band network, support rich and large message and separate them into smaller UDP packets.
  • Our network model is streaming. jsk_network_tools provides streamer and receiver.
  • jsk_network_tools is designed to cooperate with ROS communication suite.

narrow network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_lowspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_lowspeed_receiver.py, which is a gateway between two different ROS network over narrow network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are:

  1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize data into small binary format.

Automatically generate serialization format from definition of ROS message. However, this serialization only supports the simplest message definition. Limitation of the serialization are:

  1. No nested field is allowed. Only built-in types are supported.
  2. No variable length array and string are allowed.
  3. int8, duration and time are not supported.

silverhammer_lowspeed_gateway.py uses python struct module to serialize/deserialize messages.

  1. Input is one topic and output is also one topic.

In order to tucke against narrow bandwidth, we need to chose and compress transferred data. Therefore, input and output of streamer and receiver are limited to only one topic.

broad network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_highspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_highspeed_receiver.py to achieve high-throughput over broadband network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are: 1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize/Deserialize data using ROS serialization.

On this model, jsk_network_tools utilizes ROS serialization. Only one limitation is that the types of the fields should be another ROS type such as sensor_msgs/Image, geometry_msgs/Pose and so on. 3. Split ROS message into small UDP packets and collect them into ROS message.

  1. Input and output are multiple-topics.

The topics which streamer subscribes and receiver publishes are automatically decided according to definition of FC2OCSLargeData.msg.

The rule is simple:

Each field name represents topic name and __ (double under scores) is replaced by /.

For example, you want to tranfer /camera/rgb/image_rect topic, your message should have following field definition.

  sensor_msgs/Image camera__rgb__image_rect

Streamer automatically split one big data into small UDP packets. Receiver collects the packets and re-publish the messages to the topics.

Format of the UDP packet is:

    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    | Seq Id | Packet Id | Packet Num | Data ...        |
    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    |   4B   |     4B    |      4B    |                 |
    |<-------------------Staic Size--------------------->

  • Seq Id

    Sequence Id. This is incremented when streamer sends new ROS message.

  • Packet Id

    It is incremented when streamer sends new packet.

  • Packet Num

    The number of the packets for receiver to decode packets.

jsk_network_tools

Limited Network Communication.

The goal of silverhammer is to provide communication between two different ROS networks over limited network.

Currently jsk_network_tools supports two types of limited network model:

  1. Unidirectional and narrow network.
  2. Unidirectional and broad but intermittent network.

These two models are strongly inspired by DRC-final.

Problem of communication over limited network

The problems of 'limited network' are:

  1. narrow bandwidth
  2. intermittent connection

There problems cause following issues:

  • Hand-shaking is high cost.

Any kind of hand-shaking takes much time for example TCP hand-shaking and ROS node hand-shaking. * Re-sending is high cost.

Any kind of re-sending packets takes much time and consumes bandwidth for example TCP re-sending. * Re-connection is high cost.

Over intermittent connection, we need to re-connect over and over times. If bandwidth is narrow, hand-shaking is high cost mentioned above and re-connection is much high cost.

Because of these problems, we cannot use rich and well-designed communication tool such as ROS and ZMQ.

Approach towards communication over limited network

jsk_network_tools' approach for the problems is quite simple.

  • Use USP with fixed and periodic rate to remove hand-shaking of connection.
  • For narrow band network, compress message as small as possible
  • For broad band network, support rich and large message and separate them into smaller UDP packets.
  • Our network model is streaming. jsk_network_tools provides streamer and receiver.
  • jsk_network_tools is designed to cooperate with ROS communication suite.

narrow network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_lowspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_lowspeed_receiver.py, which is a gateway between two different ROS network over narrow network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are:

  1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize data into small binary format.

Automatically generate serialization format from definition of ROS message. However, this serialization only supports the simplest message definition. Limitation of the serialization are:

  1. No nested field is allowed. Only built-in types are supported.
  2. No variable length array and string are allowed.
  3. int8, duration and time are not supported.

silverhammer_lowspeed_gateway.py uses python struct module to serialize/deserialize messages.

  1. Input is one topic and output is also one topic.

In order to tucke against narrow bandwidth, we need to chose and compress transferred data. Therefore, input and output of streamer and receiver are limited to only one topic.

broad network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_highspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_highspeed_receiver.py to achieve high-throughput over broadband network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are: 1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize/Deserialize data using ROS serialization.

On this model, jsk_network_tools utilizes ROS serialization. Only one limitation is that the types of the fields should be another ROS type such as sensor_msgs/Image, geometry_msgs/Pose and so on. 3. Split ROS message into small UDP packets and collect them into ROS message.

  1. Input and output are multiple-topics.

The topics which streamer subscribes and receiver publishes are automatically decided according to definition of FC2OCSLargeData.msg.

The rule is simple:

Each field name represents topic name and __ (double under scores) is replaced by /.

For example, you want to tranfer /camera/rgb/image_rect topic, your message should have following field definition.

  sensor_msgs/Image camera__rgb__image_rect

Streamer automatically split one big data into small UDP packets. Receiver collects the packets and re-publish the messages to the topics.

Format of the UDP packet is:

    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    | Seq Id | Packet Id | Packet Num | Data ...        |
    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    |   4B   |     4B    |      4B    |                 |
    |<-------------------Staic Size--------------------->

  • Seq Id

    Sequence Id. This is incremented when streamer sends new ROS message.

  • Packet Id

    It is incremented when streamer sends new packet.

  • Packet Num

    The number of the packets for receiver to decode packets.

jsk_network_tools

Limited Network Communication.

The goal of silverhammer is to provide communication between two different ROS networks over limited network.

Currently jsk_network_tools supports two types of limited network model:

  1. Unidirectional and narrow network.
  2. Unidirectional and broad but intermittent network.

These two models are strongly inspired by DRC-final.

Problem of communication over limited network

The problems of 'limited network' are:

  1. narrow bandwidth
  2. intermittent connection

There problems cause following issues:

  • Hand-shaking is high cost.

Any kind of hand-shaking takes much time for example TCP hand-shaking and ROS node hand-shaking. * Re-sending is high cost.

Any kind of re-sending packets takes much time and consumes bandwidth for example TCP re-sending. * Re-connection is high cost.

Over intermittent connection, we need to re-connect over and over times. If bandwidth is narrow, hand-shaking is high cost mentioned above and re-connection is much high cost.

Because of these problems, we cannot use rich and well-designed communication tool such as ROS and ZMQ.

Approach towards communication over limited network

jsk_network_tools' approach for the problems is quite simple.

  • Use USP with fixed and periodic rate to remove hand-shaking of connection.
  • For narrow band network, compress message as small as possible
  • For broad band network, support rich and large message and separate them into smaller UDP packets.
  • Our network model is streaming. jsk_network_tools provides streamer and receiver.
  • jsk_network_tools is designed to cooperate with ROS communication suite.

narrow network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_lowspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_lowspeed_receiver.py, which is a gateway between two different ROS network over narrow network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are:

  1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize data into small binary format.

Automatically generate serialization format from definition of ROS message. However, this serialization only supports the simplest message definition. Limitation of the serialization are:

  1. No nested field is allowed. Only built-in types are supported.
  2. No variable length array and string are allowed.
  3. int8, duration and time are not supported.

silverhammer_lowspeed_gateway.py uses python struct module to serialize/deserialize messages.

  1. Input is one topic and output is also one topic.

In order to tucke against narrow bandwidth, we need to chose and compress transferred data. Therefore, input and output of streamer and receiver are limited to only one topic.

broad network

jsk_network_tools provides silverhammer_highspeed_streamer.py and silverhammer_highspeed_receiver.py to achieve high-throughput over broadband network.

Features of silverhammer_lowspeed_{streamer,receiver}.py are: 1. Use UDP prevent hand-shaking and re-sending.

Simply use UDP protocol with fixed rate. 2. Serialize/Deserialize data using ROS serialization.

On this model, jsk_network_tools utilizes ROS serialization. Only one limitation is that the types of the fields should be another ROS type such as sensor_msgs/Image, geometry_msgs/Pose and so on. 3. Split ROS message into small UDP packets and collect them into ROS message.

  1. Input and output are multiple-topics.

The topics which streamer subscribes and receiver publishes are automatically decided according to definition of FC2OCSLargeData.msg.

The rule is simple:

Each field name represents topic name and __ (double under scores) is replaced by /.

For example, you want to tranfer /camera/rgb/image_rect topic, your message should have following field definition.

  sensor_msgs/Image camera__rgb__image_rect

Streamer automatically split one big data into small UDP packets. Receiver collects the packets and re-publish the messages to the topics.

Format of the UDP packet is:

    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    | Seq Id | Packet Id | Packet Num | Data ...        |
    +--------+-----------+------------+-----------------+
    |   4B   |     4B    |      4B    |                 |
    |<-------------------Staic Size--------------------->

  • Seq Id

    Sequence Id. This is incremented when streamer sends new ROS message.

  • Packet Id

    It is incremented when streamer sends new packet.

  • Packet Num

    The number of the packets for receiver to decode packets.
