Greetings to you all. I am looking for a person who understands ROS and knows its ways and method of implementation into already functioning systems. Description: I have Raspberry3 + which has a standard robotic ubiquity image with raspbian.

  • Operating System: Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) Kernel: Linux 5.10.52-v7+ Architecture: arm

Installed ROS Melodic according to this manual:

without rplidar package.

Currently after "catkin build":

Rpi is using a converter level, connected to the Arduino Uno on I2c, and using USB. The current code in Arduino: takes up almost all of Uno's memory. That's why I don't want to change it.

Effort: If I use ArduinoIDE in Rpi, I can control the whole robot with the help of a display on the serial line, where there is also a list of data from the sensor.

Instructions at:

that's what I want to work on.

Unfortunately, and here begins a two-year effort to do nothing, because the above-mentioned project does not use Arduino, and is created from the ground up to measure. Yesterday I read how ROS was created, and exactly for people like me it is created accordingly, as a framework that is implemented, and there is no need to rebuild everything again from the beginning, when someone has already created something similar.

Help needed: How do I put these things together so I don't really have to redo everything? The tutorials and tutorials are either old, the ones I find, or they use "sudo apt install ros- * or rosdistro- *" but unfortunately this doesn't work on rpi or for some reason. or Arduino is not used.

So far, the only useful piece of advice I was given was to create a node that would clean up and send data over a serial line where rpi listens.

Here are the errors of the Mikova spotmicro display:

I sympathise with thing seeming very complex, but for others to be able to help you, I would recommend to focus on a single problem, and ask a question about that.

Right now your post here is very long (and some things are already hosted externally), and there are many things going on.

That doesn't make it easy for someone reading this to figure out what it is you actually need help with the most.

My suggestion: post an edit, in which you describe what your critical blocker is. What is it that keeps you from making progress?

Note: I don't use any of these packages, so I cannot help you. But I did want to comment on the question itself.
