to simple test my base controller of robot, I want to use the teleop_twist_keyboard node. In ROS Noetic, I was able to set a rate so this node keeps sending /cmd_Vel messages at the given rate.

It seems this is not possible in ROS2 or I'm just unable to set this parameter. Does any one know, how to set a rate in ROS2 (foxy) for this? Or does anyone knows a teleop package for ROS2 which sends messages at a given rate?

This is mandatory for me as my robot stops if it doesn't receive any messages in a given time for safety reason.

i'm afraid you have to do it manually, I saw in source code of teleop_twist_keyboard ros2, there is no option to set that parameter
