Hello everyone,

Currently I am logging the IMU data , GPS data and other data but since these nodes log data at different frequencies , my post processing is pointless ( Timestamps are different ). I need to find out a way by which I can synchronize all the data so I can do my post processing.

Thank you in advance, Naz

Are you using this data for robot_pose_ekf?

I am using this data for my research on Cooperative Navigation.

robot_pose_ekf is a filtering node for more accurate position. Didnt mean for what project are you using it for. Sorry.

You can use the ExactTime and ApproximateTime Synchronization methods in ROS.

In the answer at the link below, there is a sample code that subscribes to two point clouds and uses ApproximateTime policy for synchronization.
