Which version of ROS is needed?

asked 2017-03-16 02:20:08 -0600

The first package specifies Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic. The second specifies ROS Hydro or Indigo. (and Ubuntu 14.04)

Does this mean it's impossible to use them together?

In other words: I was hoping to use Husky-trainer (on a different machine, similar to the Husky) with the ZED stereo camera (and no laser) but I see ZED's latest ROS packages specify Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic. It seems ROS Indigo wants Ubuntu 14.04. I am using the NVIDIA Jetson TX1.

I've never used the Zed wrapper but looking at the github page and going to the v1.0.0 tag, it looks like version 1.0.0 works with Indigo (it's mentioned in the

I know that the Husky doesn't have support yet for Kinetic from this question here. So I think your best option is to install Indigo and try that v1.0.0 of the Zed wrapper. Even if Clearpath did finish the Husky's support for Kinetic soon, who knows if MobileRobotics-Ulaval will update husky-trainer.
