Hello everybody,

I am new to ROS and I was wondering what are advantages and disadvantages of controlling robot from PC over Ethernet or WiFi instead of onboard ROS implementation.

Thank you.

Disadvantage for wifi is you may lose connection while your robot is operating, latency will be greater and can vary considerably.

Bandwidth is less than wired, but you don't have to run after the robot as it moves, or have the robot drag your laptop off the desk
