2013-02-26 07:42:44 -0500 answered a question is rqt_reconfigure compatible to ROS electric nodes?

Unfortunately these versions are going to be incompatible, which is my fault.

I changed the dynamic_reconfigure message definitions in order to support groups, for the main reason of making improvements to rqt_reconfigure. The result of this is that newer versions of dynamic_reconfigure are not backwards compatible, and rqt_reconfigure can't be used with older versions of dynamic_reconfigure without heavy modifications.

1.5.29 is in groovy but I am working on back-porting the fix. Should be available in a day or so.

2012-07-30 17:42:32 -0500 answered a question Turtlebot- Random Wandering with Collision Avoidance

I recently integrated the bump sensors with the nav stack and its a fairly simple task. All you need to do is subscribe to the sensor_state topic and look at the bumps_wheeldrops field. If you want a more concrete example take a look at my recent modifications to the turtlebot_node here: 360. I simply use a bitwise and to get the state of each bump sensor.

Thanks for the ticket, this will be fixed in the upcoming release of dynamic_reconfigure, if you want you can get it now at https://kforge.ros.org/dynamicreconfig/hg

2012-07-07 16:59:47 -0500 answered a question Move base global planners switching

While a supervisory node certainly works it should be noted that this can be achieved using dynamic_reconfigure either using the gui or a custom client that reconfigures the new planner when needed. The one caveat to this is that these parameters can not be reconfigured while the robot is in motion.

Basically this was a defect in some of the code I wrote last year to support parameter groups and has been fixed in the latest version of dynamic_reconfigure which you can get here and will be in the next release of dynamic_reconfigure.
