Connecting my Custom Robot to ROS

Hi All,

I wanted to get and idea of your thoughts on the best way to "connect"/use ROS with my own robot. I've long since written code/custom navigation for my robot which is fitted with the usual suspects (X&Y coordinates/Gyro/Sonar and IR range finders).

I'd like to have a play around with ROS but I'm not sure the best place to start?

My robot sends it a telemetry stream and accepts motion commands (et al). Do I some how interface with this stream on the PC - via the Server I'd built. Therefore I don’t actually need to worry about writing new code for the MPU. Or something else?

I'd really appreciate some guidance. Also would the SLAM stack work OOTB with Sonar data?

Many Thanks in Advance (Probably more questions to follow)
