ROS Tips and Policies

  • All IRV launch files should have the follow prefix in the name irv_[PI's name]_, where PI is the student in charge of the project. If there is no PI, the launch file can be named with a irv_ prefix.
  • Run things on the OCU or vision stack, never on the control stack (not that most things can).
  • Remember, if the hardware you need access to is on the robot, run it on the vision stack. If it is on the OCU, run it on the OCU.
  • Most aqua related launch files are in the package aqualaunch.
  • Document everything you do.
