AWS Utils Library for ROS2


This is the common library for all of AWS RoboMaker ROS2 packages. It builds on top of the generic interfaces defined by utils-common to provide ROS2-specific helper functions and classes implementations for things such as logging and parameter loading.


The source code is released under an Apache 2.0.

Pending bloom-release. In the future, you'd be able to install the latest released version of this package using the following command on Ubuntu:

Building from Source

To build from source you'll need to create a new workspace, clone and checkout the latest release branch of this repository, install all the dependencies, and compile. If you need the latest development features you can clone from the master branch instead of the latest release branch. While we guarantee the release branches are stable, the master should be considered to have an unstable build due to ongoing development.

  • Create a ROS workspace and a source directory: mkdir -p ~/ros-workspace/src

  • Clone the package into the source directory

    cd ~/ros-workspace/src
    git clone -b release-latest
  • Install dependencies

    cd ~/ros-workspace 
    sudo apt-get update && rosdep update
    rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src -r -y

Note: If building the master branch instead of a release branch you may need to also checkout and build the master branches of the packages this package depends on.

  • Build the packages

    cd ~/ros-workspace && colcon build
  • Configure ROS library path

    source ~/ros-workspace/install/local_setup.bash
