It will be possible to have? or is someone work in?

a tool to build a small app+OS dedicated, based on our stack. I mean, that compress and optimize:

  • the sources files of our app build on top of ros
  • linux kernel, ros-core and dependencies.

Which will result in a tar with:

  1. optimized+clean SO linux
  2. optimized+clean ROS
  3. our stack/node!

I don't know of anyone with a toolchain dedicated to building "optimized" OS images. The standard technique used at the moment is to install Ubuntu and the Ubuntu packages for the stack/nodes required. For example see the TurtleBot
