Hi Everyone,

New to ROS but not to embedded systems.

I installed ROS2 Foxy on Ubuntu 20.04 in a virtualbox VM with a bridged network adapter.

Completed this tutorial successfully:

Tried the next tutorial but modified for freertos on ESP32:

Unable to complete succesfully until I realized that the ROS_DOMAIN_ID setting had an impact on the microROS setup.

I had originally set up my foxy with ROS_DOMAIN_ID = 7 and also foxy on a raspberry pi 4 with ROS_DOMAIN_ID = 7 and there was no trouble. However, the microROS on the esp32 would not report the /microROS/ping and /microROS/pong when ROS_DOMAIN_ID = 7. It reports correctly when ROS_DOMAIN_ID = 0.

Please see the attached pic for a graphical highlight of the situation.

I think this is a feature, but is documented or undocumented? :)

Looking forward to answers. Thanks.

Regards, F

I've given you sufficient karma to post images, but: it appears your screenshot shows terminal text.

There is no need to post screenshots of text, as it's text. Just copy-paste it into your question, select it and press the Preformatted Text button (the one with 101010 on it) to format it properly.

I am facing the same issue. Please do share if you have found a solution

I suspect it has to do with the message: No LSB module available since you are using a Virtual machine. One thing that may work: sudo apt-get install lsb-core

Found a solution! You need to compile the ROS Domain ID into the microROS node's options. Tested this on my end and it works. The example I found was here:
