Hi,

I am new to ROS and trying to do research using ROS. My program has lots of matrix computations where I use the eigen to do that. My question is "how can I use eigen in ROS?". I did some research on that and tried following ROS Wiki, but I have not got any luck so far. Can anybody tell me how to do that? Thanks.

As of ROS Electric, Eigen is a system dependency, so you shouldn't have to do anything special to use it.

In general, to use a ROS package, all you have to do is add

<depend package="foo"/> to your manifest.xml, and then run rosmake. Anything built with rosbuild after that will Just Work.

Eigen is included with ROS, just include <depend package="eigen"/> in yout manifest file.
