RViz Plugin TutorialsΒΆ

The RViz plugin API and library API are preliminary in Fuerte. We welcome feedback about how to make them more powerful and easier to program with. We expect the APIs to change (possibly significantly) between Fuerte and Groovy.

The rviz_plugin_tutorials package builds a plugin library for rviz containing two main classes: ImuDisplay and TeleopPanel.

  • ImuDisplay is an example of an rviz::Display subclass allowing rviz to show data from sensor_msgs::Imu messages.
  • TeleopPanel is an example of an rviz::Panel subclass which shows a simple control input for sending velocities to a mobile base.
