ROS Overview

For developers with experience using ROS, we’ve built support for ROS into VOXL, as an alternative to coding within VOXL’s Modal Pipe Architecture with systemd services and POSIX pipes.

This approach is more of a wrapper around VOXL’s Modal Pipe Architecture and introduces more overhead. The way it works is that a ROS node translates POSIX pipes in the VOXL Modal Pipe Architecture into topics that can be used in ROS.

High performance can be achieved either way.
