Hello, I am running ROS 16.04 over an Ethernet network consisting of a network switch, a BBB(Master) and two Intel NUCs. My problem arrises when I add an android phone running rosjava over WiFi connected to the BeagleBone Black. On boot, a service file executes a script that starts rosmaster on the BBB and exports it over ethernet.

#! /bin/sh
. /home/astrobotics/ros_code/devel/
#export ROS_IP=localhost
export ROS_IP=
roslaunch autonomous_control autonomous.launch

This works fine for ethernet and fine for WiFi when I change to


But it's one or the other. How would I export the Master URI so both networks can use it? Thanks!

You have to bridge both interfaces. The wifi and the Ethernet so both have excess to ethch other.
