Dear Community,

My question may be inappropriate for this place. I apologize in advance.

Which library/tool do you use for designing GUI for a robotic system? Following are my requirements: 1. Supports ROS 2. Touchscreen Internface 3. Web-based (Preferred)

I am aware of RQT [1]. However, the look and feel of RQT UI don't look appropriate for a touchscreen interface. One candidate is Robot Web Tools [2].

Please advice.

  1. RQT:
  2. Robot Web Tools:

However there are no examples for ROS2
