Rerun 0.13: fast plotting and more examples of ROS integrations

Hello ROS community, it’s been a while since I’ve posted about Rerun.

We’ve made a lot of progress over the last year, including C++ support, a more consistent API surface, and greater extensibility features. However, 0.13 seemed like a great candidate for another update over here.

With this release, Rerun is (to our knowledge) the first publicly available multimodal visualizer with timeline scrolling that supports live visualization of time series in the kHz range. Robotics use-cases involving time-series derived from motion-data have been a big driving factor for us in building these features.

We shared details on why this is exciting as well as why it was challenging in our blog.

To go along with our posts we also put together a couple of examples that are particularly relevant to the ROS community:
