I’m trying to use bluerov and bluerov_app ROS packages to control my BlueROV. The approach I’m trying now is to control the ROV using joystick through ROS and then send commands to joystick topic to control the ROV autonomously. (Is this a good approach? Is there any other recommended way to do this?)
I’m now running:
- ROS master my ground computer
- launch bluerov_r1.launch on companion computer(RPi with Ubuntu image, ROS and bluerov pkgs installed)
- launch joystick node in bluerov_apps pkg on ground PC with joystick connected to it
I always receive message in joystick console as
Connection to joystick device lost unexpectedly. Will reopen.
Even if I tried to run all the nodes on ground PC, the same problem occurs again.
If I run the original ROS node for joystick ( rosrun joy joy_node_teleop), this error doesn’t appear.
Has anybody faced this problem?
