toposens_markers

This package provides functionality for transforming TsScan messages to Markers for visualizing in RViz.

It was developed and tested for ROS Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) and ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) using Toposens TS3 ultrasonic sensor.

Overview

  • Maps TsPoints of incoming TsScan structure (received on the topic defined by scans_topic parameter, typically /ts_scans) to the target_frame (which is a parameter as well), utilizing subscribed tf
  • Converts TsScan/TsPoint data to visualization_msgs/MarkerArray messages by making use of RViz Visual Tools (http://wiki.ros.org/rviz_visual_tools)
  • Publishes converted messages on the topic /ts_markers

Usage

Build

Find information on how to build the package in the README of the toposens metapackage.

Enable Serial Port Permissions

Find information on how to setup the serial port permissions in the README of the toposens_driver package.

Run

The ts_markers_node translates the messages of type toposens_msgs/TsScan into messages of type visualization_msgs/MarkerArray, which can be visualized in RViz.

The driver node as well as the markers node are launched from within one launch-file:

roslaunch toposens_markers toposens_markers.launch port:=/dev/ttyUSB0

Configuration

Configuration is done via a dynamic reconfiguration server and launch file parameters.

To manipulate sensor parameters as well as visualization parameters live in realtime, run in an additional terminal window:

rosrun rqt_reconfigure rqt_reconfigure

There are 2 parameters that can be changed in the ts_markers_node.

Parameter Name Description
lifetime Duration for which a marker should remain visible
scale Magnitude for resizing markers equally and simultaneously
