This tutorial guides you to bring up a turtlebot as concert client and join concert that you have started in the previous tutorial. Also it assumes that you have installed all turtlebot packages in TurtleBot Installation.

Bring up a Turtle

1. Bring up a TurtleBot with its own name.

 > export ROS_MASTER_URI=http://localhost:11311
 > export ROS_HOSTNAME=<turtlebot pc ip address>
 > export TURTLEBOT_NAME=my_turtle
 > roslaunch turtlebot_bringup concert_client.launch --screen

Note that Concert framework is a multi ros master system. Keep ROS_MASTER_URI as http://localhost:11311.

2. Now turtlebot should have joined the concert with zerocon auto discovery. Check with conductor graph in concert PC to see if turtlebot has joined.
