[ROSCon 2014] Daniel Lazewatsky: Rapid prototyping with rosh
Although we may like to think that the bulk of our development time is spent on things like developing new algorithms, much of that time actually goes to debugging, data introspection, and testing out small ideas. This can require lots of one-off scripts or time in an interactive shell – neither of which are well-supported by ROS. This talk will (re)introduce rosh, a python-based interactive shell and scripting environment for ROS. rosh basics will be discussed, including interaction with topics, services, geometry, visualization, and more, and how to use these to easily perform high-level robot control.
