Does the xsens_driver ( ) support hydro? As there is no files under the hydro version.

Thanks in advance!

The master branch cannot work directly for ROS hydro version.

But we could install the ros-hydro-gps-common from the Synaptic Package Manager.

And then $git clone $catkin_make

After that, it should work

To use the xsens_driver, the USB access shall be changed to the administrator

$sudo chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0

Then the xsens_driver could be launched and the imu data could be viewed by the following command.

$roslaunch xsens_driver xsens_driver.launch $rostopic echo /imu/data

Have you tried installing it from debs?

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-xsens-driver

Works for me, and appears to install the appropriate driver nodes. I don't have an xsens, so I can't test if the driver actually works or not.
