Stack contains software required to use NetFT input with ROS. NetFT measures ATI Force/Torque sensor (F/T) outputs. It can be accessed through Ethernet or CAN interface. However ROS driver only supports communciation with device using RDT protocol over Ethernet.
Raw Data Transfer (RDT)
The NetFT supports a very simple communication protocol using UDP packets. This protocol is extremely simple to use.
Ethernet/IP is a protocol used for industrial automation. It built upon TCP/UDP communication. The IP in Ethernet/IP stands for Industrial Protocol not Internet Protocol.
CAN Controller Area Network. Is lower speed (max 1Mbit/sec) shared bus.
