Hi everyone, I'm trying to establish communication between Rosbridge and Node Red, so I'm using ros_publish node from Node-Red-contrib-ros in Node Red, and even after adding the ROS server address (ws:// to the node I can't get it to connect to Rosbridge.

The following error appears "[error] [ros-server:ebb28890.372cf8] TypeError: util.debug is not a function"

Can anyone tell me what is missing to establish the communication?

Thank you in advance

Hi Yassine,

Not sure if this is still valid for you, but I experienced the same issue with the ros library in Node red. I was not able to get it to work, but figured out how to directly use the websocket nodes in Node red to circumvent the issue and establish communication with ROS.

I have described the steps here :

Because apparently there is a rule that you cannot include images in your answer when you have less then 5 points? ( I do not see how this rule is contributing to share knowledge... )
