View in 360º and control robot with ROS

Hi. I'm working on a project and my objective is to have:

  • A rover car controlled using ROS2;
  • A 360º view above that base;
  • To have the POV of the camera mirrored in a VR headset (so when I move my head I will be at another angle of vision);
  • Control that moving base using the VR headset controllers;

The objective is to create a remote-controlled robot.

Do you know if this is possible and if it is, what model of VR Headset and camera I will need for this?

This is possible. There are various options for headsets and cameras. I'd encourage you to research this yourself. Most cameras are plug 'n play with ROS(2) using usb_cam. You can either build your own robot from scratch or you can buy one of the many robots available. One example to look at is the ROS2 Turtlebot.

Here's an article on sensor selection for mobile robots that might help (disclaimer: I wrote it).
