Detailed Description

ROS Controller Manager and Runner.

This class advertises a ROS interface for loading, unloading, starting, and stopping ros_control-based controllers. It also serializes execution of all running controllers in update.

Definition at line 67 of file controller_manager.h.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

controller_manager::ControllerManager::ControllerManager ( hardware_interface::RobotHW robot_hw,
const ros::NodeHandle nh = ros::NodeHandle() 


robot_hwA pointer to a robot hardware interface
nhThe ros::NodeHandle in whose namespace all ROS interfaces should operate.

Member Function Documentation

controller_interface::ControllerBase * controller_manager::ControllerManager::getControllerByName ( const std::string &  name)

Get a controller by name.

nameThe name of a controller
An up-casted pointer to the controller identified by name

Definition at line 575 of file controller_manager.cpp.

bool controller_manager::ControllerManager::loadController ( const std::string &  name)

Load a new controller by name.

This dynamically loads a controller called name and initializes the newly loaded controller.

It determines the controller type by accessing the ROS parameter "type" in the namespace given by name relative to the namespace of root_nh_. It then initializes the controller with the hardware_interface::RobotHW pointer robot_hw_, the ros::NodeHandle describing this namespace, and a reference to a std::set to retrieve the resources needed by this controller.

A controller cannot be loaded while already loaded. To re-load a controller, first unloadController and then loadController.

nameThe name of the controller as well as the ROS namespace under which the controller should be loaded
True on success
False on failure

bool controller_manager::ControllerManager::loadControllerSrv ( controller_manager_msgs::LoadController::Request &  req,
controller_manager_msgs::LoadController::Response &  resp 

Definition at line 648 of file controller_manager.cpp.

void controller_manager::ControllerManager::registerControllerLoader ( ControllerLoaderInterfaceSharedPtr  controller_loader)

Register a controller loader.

By default, the pluginlib-based ControllerLoader is registered on construction of this class. To load controllers through alternate means, register alternate controller loaders here. Note, however, that when controllers are loaded by loadController the controller loaders are queried in the order that they were registered. This means that if a controller CAN be loaded by the pluginlib-based ControllerLoader, then it WILL, regardless of which other loaders are registered.

controller_loaderA pointer to the loader to be registered

bool controller_manager::ControllerManager::reloadControllerLibrariesSrv ( controller_manager_msgs::ReloadControllerLibraries::Request &  req,
controller_manager_msgs::ReloadControllerLibraries::Response &  resp 

Definition at line 522 of file controller_manager.cpp.

bool controller_manager::ControllerManager::switchController ( const std::vector< std::string > &  start_controllers,
const std::vector< std::string > &  stop_controllers,
const int  strictness 

Switch multiple controllers simultaneously.

start_controllersA vector of controller names to be started
stop_controllersA vector of controller names to be stopped
strictnessHow important it is that the requested controllers are started and stopped. The levels are defined in the controller_manager_msgs/SwitchControllers service as either BEST_EFFORT or STRICT. BEST_EFFORT means that switchController can still succeed if a non-existent controller is requested to be stopped or started.

bool controller_manager::ControllerManager::unloadController ( const std::string &  name)

Unload a controller by name.

nameThe name of the controller to unload. (The same as the one used in loadController )

void controller_manager::ControllerManager::update ( const ros::Time time,
const ros::Duration period,
bool  reset_controllers = false 

Update all active controllers.

When controllers are started or stopped (or switched), those calls are made in this function.

timeThe current time
periodThe change in time since the last call to update
reset_controllersIf true, stop and start all running controllers before updating
