Hi ROSAnswers Friends,

I have been developing my own Java based ROS Client, and I am receiving the following error: Below is the message I am attempting to process in the form of a Java byte array. The protocol finished the getTopic method via XMLRPC, and now is my Robot controllers attempt to obtain the following Topic via the returned TCPROS protocol message: public final static byte[] MESSAGE={(byte)0xd6,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x20,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x61,(byte)0x6c,(byte)0x6c,(byte)0x65,(byte)0x72,(byte)0x69,(byte)0x64,(byte)0x3d,(byte)0x2f,(byte)0x72,(byte)0x6d,(byte)0x64,(byte)0x6d,(byte)0x69,(byte)0x61,(byte)0x18,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x74,(byte)0x6f,(byte)0x70,(byte)0x69,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x3d,(byte)0x2f,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x6c,(byte)0x6f,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x6b,(byte)0x4e,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x6d,(byte)0x64,(byte)0x35,(byte)0x73,(byte)0x75,(byte)0x6d,(byte)0x3d,(byte)0x61,(byte)0x39,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x39,(byte)0x37,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x31,(byte)0x64,(byte)0x32,(byte)0x33,(byte)0x30,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x66,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x31,(byte)0x31,(byte)0x32,(byte)0x65,(byte)0x32,(byte)0x37,(byte)0x30,(byte)0x33,(byte)0x35,(byte)0x31,(byte)0x61,(byte)0x39,(byte)0x34,(byte)0x34,(byte)0x65,(byte)0x65,(byte)0x34,(byte)0x37,(byte)0x30,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x00,(byte)0x74,(byte)0x79,(byte)0x70,(byte)0x65,(byte)0x3d,(byte)0x72,(byte)0x6f,(byte)0x73,(byte)0x67,(byte)0x72,(byte)0x61,(byte)0x70,(byte)0x68,(byte)0x5f,(byte)0x6d,(byte)0x73,(byte)0x67,(byte)0x73,(byte)0x2f,(byte)0x43,(byte)0x6c,(byte)0x6f,(byte)0x63,(byte)0x6b};

Can anybody tell me what is wrong with the above message?

Thanks,

Aaron

The TCPROS protocol information on www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/TCPROS states the following required fields for a TCPROS Connection Header: callerid: name of subscriber topic: name of the topic the subscriber is connecting to md5sum: md5sum of the message type type: message type

Unfortunately, the /clock topic in the DRCSIM for Gazebo, also requires message_definition field, or ROS throws the [ERROR] [1365876629.072388151, 159.022000000]: a header of over a gigabyte was predicted in tcpros. that seems highly unlikely, so I'll assume protocol synchronization is lost.

Not sure if this is specific to DRCSIM, ROS, or Gazebo, but if it is ROS, the wiki page needs to be updated with the message_definition field as a required field, or countless people will spend hours and hours spinning their wheels when attempting to write a ROS Client from scratch as I am doing. I hope this information helps somebody else.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi Aaron, Were you able to resolve or pin down this issue? We've started observing it too.

But I don't really understand your Answer above.

yours, Maurice (MIT DRC Team)

Hi Maurice, The problem was no message_definition header field. Attached is a byte array that will resolve the error. Unfortunately, I did not get TCPROS to reply but I went on to UDPROS implementation thinking the response will be something simple. See above answer for @Maurice
