Does ROS provide any best practice way to detect when a websocket used by a rosbridge client is lost? AFAIK I cannot rely on a socket disconnect event for all failure cases.

Does ROS, rosbridge or roslibjs have any builtin feature like a heartbeat topic, that a rosbridge client can use to detect the connection status?

For regular ROS: bonds, but that would probably not work for entities on the other side of rosbridge.
