README

telegram_ros

Bridges between a Telegram conversation and ROS.

Only a single Telegram user can send and receive text, images and locations to/from the ROS bridge. A user must send the /start command to start a conversation. A new user can then /start as well and take over. Once connected, a user can type /stop to disconnect

Currently, there is no authentication (Issue #6)
