Hey!

Is there a way to reset rviz via topic/service/...? I'd like to clear all objects e.g. when restarting a node and since the display is not at my desk, I'd like to be able to just send a trigger to reset instead of having to use a mouse.

Not that I'm aware of, but you could possible write an rviz plugin that allowed you to do so.

I wanted to rekindle this idea. Before I go off and implement something to do this (in my "free time"), is anyone aware of a way to s/w trigger an rviz "reset" -- literally, to trigger the functionality that the "reset" button in the bottom left of the rviz screen carries out. Ideally passing an "empty" message to some topic/service that rviz is listening on would be ideal.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
