What kind of terminal is compatible with ROS to connect sensors to a computer

Hi ROS community ! I work on a robot and we fixed a lot of sensors. But now, I need a terminal to connect sensor to my computer..Before, we used a NI compactRIO compatible with LabView but not with ROS. So I have to change this terminal to another compatible with ROS. Someone have an idea of what model and brand I have to choose ? Thank you

It depends of your sensors. You can probably do a program to get your data from your terminal to ROS.

I have temperature sensors, inertial, distance, sensors and fans.. I have to search another terminal to manipulate them with my computer but with ROS

You can manipulate your sensors with ROS by creating your own package that will get data from your NI compactRIO and publish them to a ROS Topic. You can use Python to do that : link text and link text . If you want another terminal, you can look at Arduino board, but I am not sure that this is a good solution.

Have you seen ROS for LabVIEW by Tufts University? It should be deployable to compactRIOs as well.
