For a project I am working on, I will be devoloping software on pcs running on Windows. The software will then be implemented on a robot using Android. Is it possble to devolop a ROS package on Windows that can then be used on Android. Furthermore, is it possible to interface with ROS with Unity. Thanks

Hi there, We've (Azure Edge Robotics at Microsoft) tried to minimize the differences between building a ROS node on Windows and Linux. I'm inclined to say this would work, but I personally have not tried it.

We're working with the community to bring ROS2 to Mixed Reality Toolkit for Unity, UWP and Hololens. We'll have more to share about this soon.

Be Well! Lou
