Use a launcher to fire up the keyop command as this will allow you to map the above topics to the appropriate namespace.

<node pkg="yocs_keyop" type="keyop" name="yocs_keyop">
<remap from="yocs_keyop/enable" to="/my_robot/enable"/>
<remap from="yocs_keyop/disable" to="/my_robot/disable"/>
<remap from="yocs_keyop/vel_cmd" to="/my_robot/cmd_vel"/>

You may wish to change the remappings to suit the currently running robot. You can initiate with

roslaunch yocs_keyop robot_core.launch

and use the arrow keys to navigation, with 'e', 'd' to enable or disable the motors and 'q' to quit.
