Spacenav Node

Published topics
  • spacenav/offset (geometry_msgs/msg/Vector3)

Publishes the linear component of the joystick's position. Approximately normalized to a range of -1 to 1. * spacenav/rot_offset(geometry_msgs/msg/Vector3)

Publishes the angular component of the joystick's position. Approximately normalized to a range of -1 to 1. * spacenav/twist (geometry_msgs/msg/Twist)

Combines offset and rot_offset into a single message. * spacenav/joy (sensor_msgs/msg/Joy)

Outputs the spacenav's six degrees of freedom and its buttons as a joystick message.

Parameters

sets values to zero when the spacenav is not moving * zero_when_static (boolean, default: true) * static_count_threshold (int, default: 30)

The number of polls needed to be done before the device is considered "static" * static_trans_deadband (float, default: 0.1)

sets the translational deadband * static_rot_deadband (float, default: 0.1)

sets the rotational deadband * linear_scale/x (float, default: 1) * linear_scale/y (float, default: 1) * linear_scale/z (float, default: 1)

sets the scale of the linear output * angular_scale/x (float, default: 1) * angular_scale/y (float, default: 1) * angular_scale/z (float, default: 1) sets the scale of the angular output

Running the spacenav node

Running the node is straightforward

$ ros2 run spacenav spacenav

The node is now publishing to the topics listed above.
