Hi, this is the situation:

let supose we all live in a small town where everyone has an autonomous car using ROS.. :D

Now, we want to enable V2X communication in our vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) in order to stablish an intelligent transportation system, ITS.

questions are:

¿How to communicate N ROS systems between themselves in a intermitent wireless network?
¿How to communicate ROS systems through a Non-ROS System at Infrastructure*?

I know this is a very wide question, but I want to know if there is a proposed architecture for systems like this.



Non-ROS system could be, for example, a web server for traffic info or a intersection manager, etc.

For multiple ROS systems there is multimaster, although I don't know the state of that package.

Communications through non-ROS systems is obviously dependent on the non-ROS system.

I've read about multimaster, but it is in current development. And the Non-ROS system could be a web server.

Everything custom, you'll have to implement. Web server could mean anything. For the client site there is You might be able to use that.
