I have a pic32 ethernet kit microcontroller, and i want connect it with another pic32 and with the master in a pc using ROS and the protocol TCP/IP. Is it possible?
I read that there are the rosserial package and the rosc library, but i don't understand how they work, so if is possible what 's the better solution?

I have used the rosserial with ardunino and it works great. The code is written in C. You can use tcp/ip with PIC perhaps ROS bridge.

Rosserial is sending receiving and sending ros topics or messages. The message will need a ros header on it but could be a string of some length that contains your json information you are trying to convey. Ros serial is like ros bridge but connects to a serial line. Ros bridge uses tcp/ip but once again it is I think a ros topic message and above applys to it.
