The goal of this project is to create a collaborative project infrastructure in docker with ROS compatibility for Spot
I lead an effort to create the infrastructure
that supports collaborative development for projects using the Boston Dynamics Spot robot;
My efforts include: (1) making the development environment in docker
such that it is compatible with ROS (using spot_ros);
(2) investigate different network connections; (3) make available functionalities
including keyboard control, camera image streaming, 3D SLAM mapping, localization, navigation, etc.
Below are two videos showing early stage milestones.
