I am making an application by Qt to control my robot ,but I have no ideas. And here is what I want to do in this application:

1.make a teleoperation gui to control my robot; 2.display laser scan map from my robot in this gui; 3.display the pose message of my robot in this gui; 4.and there is a usb_camera on my robot , so I want to display the picture from it;

So can anybody give me some advise?

Do you want to have this application or do you want to make that? Because most/all of this functionality already exists in ROS.

Are you aware that rqt lets you loading plugins into one rqt instance?

In addition to @dornhege's comment, you can also create your own rqt plugin by reusing existing rqt plugins. This QA might be of your help.

For laser, it depends on how you want to visualize laser input. RViz has LaserScan FYI.
