Jetson nano comes with ubuntu 18.04 and ros kinetic is supported in 16.04. Can I install ros melodic on my jetson nano. Will I be still able to establish a connection by connecting to ros nodes of ros slave?

Thanks in advance.

If I am not mistaken if you try to use two different ROS versions when you exchange information via a topic/service you will get an error indicating that there is an mismatch in the md5sum of the msgs.

Something like this:

Why don't you update your raspberry pi to ubuntu 18.04 and install ROS melodic? The kinect version of ROS has already reached its end of life.
