Hello everyone,

I'm using ROS to control my cable-robot. I use Arduinos to create communication between ROS and sensors and actuators. But, frequency of rosserial_python node is low (120 hz) and because of that the system is not controlled well. Is there any other nodes or boards that I can use for my project?

Thank you in advance,

Thank you for your answer. It is written in the website that "RoNeX sends and receives data packets 1,000 times a second, consistently, all the time." Does it mean that no matter how many sensor we connect, it will publish the data in rate of 1 Khz?

my understanding is that the module will be able to read all its gpios and send values in that time. As you add more modules you might saturate the bandwidth of the bus, but as it is ethernet you would need to add a lot of modules before that happened, but you could get clarification from them
