Questions related to gazebo/turtlebot supported in ROS 2

Hi,
A couple of questions:

  1. I’m looking to see when gazebo/turtlebot_simulator would be supported
    by ROS 2. I saw that ROS 2 beta in dec will not have it.

  2. I was looking at the gazebo_ros_pkgs and wasn’t sure if this is a migration to ROS 2
    or something more. Could you please comment? I saw that in the plugins
    directory that some of the functions aren’t supported in ROS2 common interfaces or have been redesigned e.g. dynamic reconfiguration, nodelet, etc

  3. Is there a description of work effort for the support and if anyone else is interested (potential collaboration)?

  4. In ROS 2 the turtlebot demo supports only astra’s camera and inorder to support asus camera.
    Should the same be used; Astra driver: we forked and ported the existing ROS 1 package (there’s no roscpp-independent package separation).?

Thanks
Vince

Hello Vince:

I’ve created a tracker issue in gazebo_ros_pkgs to follow the information about the port of gazebo_ros_pkgs to ROS 2.0. Some answers inline here:

I think that gazebo_ros_pkgs is not consider as a core part of ROS 2.0 so I won’t expect to see it in the early stages of the Roadmap. [quote=“vdiluoffo, post:1, topic:830”]

If you have checked the current gazebo_ros_pkgs repository, there is nothing related to ROS 2.0 in there, just ROS 1.0.

I’m not aware of any at this point but sounds like a very interesting first work that can be done right now.

Thanks.

Hi Jose,
Thanks for the reply and I’ll post shortly to your tracker.

Thanks
Vince
