We are working on a project for visualizing ROS-Data, supporting current AR/ VR devices like the Hololens and Rift.
The Project is built on the ROS Sharp framework (https://github.com/siemens/ros-sharp) and we plan to include DDS at some point when we got it running.
Those are our set goals for the project:
The software module should provide a stable communication link between the Unity
application running on AR/VR gear (Hololens) and ROS, enabling to send and receive live
• Support of AR/VR gear
The module should already support current off-the shelf AR/VR gear. We start to integrate
the Microsoft Hololens, but plan also to use HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
We want to demonstrate the capabilities of AR/VR interfaces for a ROSin running robot
by documenting a showcase an providing tutorials for setup and use.
• Interface toolkit
The software should include a toolkit for building AR/VR interfaces to the robot (roughly
in the direction of rviz for AR/VR)
• Multi-User support
The software should be able to enabling multiple users to see the same virtual content,
so they can use this information for discussions.
The project still in development, but feel free to check it out:
