urdf_launch

This package contains launch files and configurations for common URDF operations.

Load Description

description.launch.py * Loads the URDF/Xacro robot model as a parameter, based on launch arguments * Launches a single node, robot_state_publisher, with the robot model parameter. * This results in the robot description being available as a topic.

The result is that you can perform the above actions with just 5 lines (not including boilerplate) in your own launch file.

from launch import LaunchDescription
from launch.actions import IncludeLaunchDescription
from launch.substitutions import PathJoinSubstitution
from launch_ros.substitutions import FindPackageShare


def generate_launch_description():
    ld = LaunchDescription()

    ld.add_action(IncludeLaunchDescription(
        PathJoinSubstitution([FindPackageShare('urdf_launch'), 'launch', 'description.launch.py']),
        launch_arguments={
            'urdf_package': 'turtlebot3_description',
            'urdf_package_path': PathJoinSubstitution(['urdf', 'turtlebot3_burger.urdf'])}.items()
    ))

    return ld


Display Robot Model

When developing a URDF robot model, it is often useful to display just the robot model in RViz. display.launch.py does the above tasks PLUS: * Launches RViz with a preconfigured setup * Launches a joint state publisher (with optional GUI)

This can be used in its own launch file, like the previous example, or can be done via command line, e.g.

ros2 launch urdf_launch display.launch.py urdf_package:=turtlebot3_description urdf_package_path:=urdf/turtlebot3_burger.urdf
