Detailed Description

frameTransformSet_nwc_ros: A network wrapper client which publishes the transforms received on the yarp::dev::IFrameTransformStorageSet interface to a ROS topic.

Parameters

Parameters required by this device are:

Parameter name SubParameter Type Units Default Valu Required Description
GENERAL - group - - No
- period double seconds 0.01 No The PeriodicThread period in seconds
- refresh_interval double seconds 0.1 No The time interval outside which timed fts will be deleted
- asynch_pub int - 1 No If 1, the fts will be published not only every "period" seconds but also when set functions are called
ROS - group - - No
- ft_topic string - /tf No The name of the ROS topic on which fts will be published
- ft_topic_static string - /tf_static No The name of the ROS topic on which static fts will be published
- ft_node string - /tfNodeSet No The of the ROS node

N.B. pay attention to the difference between tf and ft

Member Function Documentation

◆ clearAll()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::clearAll ( )
overridevirtual

Delete all transforms in a storage.

Returns
true/false

Implements yarp::dev::IFrameTransformStorageSet.

Definition at line 229 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ close()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::close ( )
overridevirtual

Close the DeviceDriver.

Returns
true/false on success/failure.

Reimplemented from yarp::dev::DeviceDriver.

Definition at line 92 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ deleteTransform()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::deleteTransform ( std::string  src,
std::string  dst 
)
overridevirtual

Delete a single transform in the storage.

Parameters
srcthe source of frame transform to delete
dstthe destination of frame transform to delete
Returns
true/false

Implements yarp::dev::IFrameTransformStorageSet.

Definition at line 222 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ open()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::open ( yarp::os::Searchable config)
overridevirtual

Open the DeviceDriver.

Parameters
configis a list of parameters for the device. Which parameters are effective for your device can vary. See device invocation examples. If there is no example for your device, you can run the "yarpdev" program with the verbose flag set to probe what parameters the device is checking. If that fails too, you'll need to read the source code (please nag one of the yarp developers to add documentation for your device).
Returns
true/false upon success/failure

Reimplemented from yarp::dev::DeviceDriver.

Definition at line 28 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ publishFrameTransforms()

void FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::publishFrameTransforms ( const std::vector< yarp::math::FrameTransform > &  transforms)

Definition at line 190 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ run()

void FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::run ( )
overridevirtual

Loop function.

This is the thread itself. The thread calls the run() function every <period> ms. At the end of each run, the thread will sleep the amounth of time required, taking into account the time spent inside the loop function. Example: requested period is 10ms, the run() function take 3ms to be executed, the thread will sleep for 7ms.

Note: after each run is completed, the thread will call a yield() in order to facilitate other threads to run.

Implements yarp::os::PeriodicThread.

◆ setTransform()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::setTransform ( const yarp::math::FrameTransform transform)
overridevirtual

Save a frame transform in a storage.

Parameters
transformsthe transform to be stored
Returns
true/false

Implements yarp::dev::IFrameTransformStorageSet.

Definition at line 149 of file FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros.cpp.

◆ setTransforms()

bool FrameTransformSet_nwc_ros::setTransforms ( const std::vector< yarp::math::FrameTransform > &  transforms)
overridevirtual

Save some frame transforms in a storage.

Parameters
transformsthe list of transforms to be stored
Returns
true/false

Implements yarp::dev::IFrameTransformStorageSet.
