TurtleBot SDK Installation
These instructions will guide you through installing the TurtleBot SDK on your workstation.
- Able to install ROS. We recommend Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10.
- Able to run Ogre
- This should be a machine which can run Ogre to be able to run the visualizations.
Full network connectivity with TurtleBot
It will also need to be able to ping the turtlebot computer and vice versa. Often setting up openvpn is a useful way to make sure this is possible. See ROS/NetworkSetup for more information.
Network Time Protocol
Clock synchronization is important for ROS. Chrony has been found to be the best ntp client over lossy wireless. In case of robot behaves strange when messages are sent from PC application(like rviz, rqt, or ros node running in PC), you need clock synchronization.
- Install Chrony
sudo apt-get install chrony
- manually sync NTP
sudo ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com
