Can anybody please let me know how to make a graphical user interfaces in ROS? I have heard about qt and rqt. But there is so less documentation available about these. I have also heard rqt_gui. I have to make a user interface for a mobile robot. I was considering using an android app for that. But, if a user interface can be easily built using ROS tools then I think it would be a better option.

Can somebody please help?

I suggest you look at the rqt/Tutorials on the wiki.

There is not a standard way to do things on android.

Another option is to use a web interface for which Robot Web Tools is a recommended approach.

Thanks for that. I have looked up at rqt. I would use the WYSIWYG offered by Qt Creator to create the design of the GUI.

I just made a regular web application and interfaced with the ROS portion of the application using rosbridge/websockets. It worked out pretty well.
