Is there a guide to cross-compiling ROS for ARM (BBB)?

The eROS project appears to be graveyarded and I'm looking for a place to start.

My Requirements:

  • Build ROS Packages in amd64 machine with cross compiler
  • "Deploy" binaries on target - Beaglebone black - which already has ROS installed on it
  • Run ROS nodes on the target

I can build the ROS packages on the BBB itself but that workflow gets out of hand for distributed systems - a cluster of 10-20 BBBs that may all run an instance of the built ROS package..

Hey thanks for pointing me in this direction! I've got it working now thanks to the pages you've given me. beagle-ros environment setup + meta-ros enabled me to bitbake user-defined recipes for ROS packages that I was able to deploy and successfully run on BBB. Thanks!
