I have two robots and I want to run a roscore for each one of the robots. But, I also need to exchange pose information between the robots. Therefore, there are topics from robot 1 that I need to publish on the robot 2 and topics from the robot 2 that I wanto to subscribe from the robot 1 (and the contrary).

There are any solution for that? Can anyone help me?

Many thanks in advance

You will want to run a single roscore that both robots use. The instructions on running ROS multiple machines should be a good place to start looking into this:

It is very easy to do once you can get an ssh connection between the robots.

Hope that helps
