The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a flexible framework for developing software for robotics. It is a set of tools, software libraries, and rules that help you build and control complex robot applications.
For support, PI offers a ROS driver with which PI hexapods can be integrated into a ROS environment. The PI hexapods can comfortably be controlled with it by using the well known mechanisms from ROS. ROS additionally offers the possibility to visualize and simulate the application. For certain hexapods, models exist that are automatically available when the ROS driver is downloaded.
The download is available on the GitHub website:
