Contains platform specific type definitions that guarantee the size of primitive data types.
The byte size of shared data types was determined by balancing the needs to represent large data values with that of the platforms limits. In the case of platform limits, robot controllers represent the most restrictive limits.
The majority of robot controllers have 32-bit architectures. As such this was chosen as the base for communications. Real and Integer data types are represented as 4 bytes.
All types must match size and structure of the ROS_TYPES
