modelica_bridge 0.1.1




modelica_bridge is the ROS package complement of the Modelica package ROS_Bridge.

The purpose of modelica_bridge is to provide an interface between Modelica tools and ROS. This interface, or bridge, is accomplished by running tcp/ip sockets in a ROS node, and in an external C-function through Modelica (accomplished via ROS_Bridge).

Usage Summary

The modelica_bridge package consists of the node connecting ROS and Modelica, modbridge_node, and the message type modbridge_node publishes on, the ModComm.msg.

The package can take up to 256 inputs from the ROS controllers, and can send a maximum of 1024 characters over a character buffer to Modelica. It has two parameters: port_num and update_rate. Ensure that the port_num matches the value of the Modelica model's port number parameter.

For more detailed documentation and tutorials, see the ROS wiki.
