I’m certainly interested in attending! It sounds like a great opportunity to provide feedback and hopefully learn a bit more about the library.
A question about the workshop: Is it’s purpose solely to get feedback from the community or are you open to presenting some info about the lesser known features of BT.CPP? I think that could be very useful for both new and existing users of the library.
Sounds like a great idea! A couple of thoughts I had:
Are there any updated in Behavior Tree literature, especially from @miccol’s work, that could be added?
For live monitoring, potentially switching technology that allows for multiple publishers & publish the behavior tree XML file on starting so that we can potentially switch between trees within the execution of the system and have that appear in 1 window
Perhaps these exist and I haven’t run into them : included looping BT nodes (e.g. while or for conditions, basically) and demo XMLs using them as examples
Examples of the parallel control flow node in documentation
I’d really love to have a Rviz panel tool for visualizing BTs and BTs in execution. That would be such a huge help.
Versioning behavior trees – having version numbers in the preamble of the XML or the root so that we can read that in and have validation checks on the BT being what we expect it to be when in use
Other than that, the only piece I would like is somewhat better explanation of halt()haltChildren()setStatus() and other resetting or state-esk functions in BT.CPP and having best practices about when these should be manually called or handled by the system internally. So, a best practices for behavior tree node designers page. We picked up on those from discussions with you in the earlier days of Nav2, but I don’t think they’re explicitly made clear anywhere for developers at large.
Google Calendar says that it “could not find the requested event” when I click on that link on my desktop, and creates an empty event when I try it on my phone. Is the event marked to private (or something else?), or is it an issue on my end?
@facontidavide will the workshop be recorded? I am interested, but I will not be able to join tomorrow
I am mostly interested in seeing if there is some research opportunity for us or even if I might promote some projects on BehaviourTree.CPP for my students at VU Amsterdam (an Rviz panel would be a nice Bachelor project for example).
