ROS#

ROS# is a set of open source software libraries and tools in C# for communicating with ROS from .NET applications, in particular Unity.

Find some examples what you can do with ROS# here.

Recent Changes

This commit comes with major changes in how ROS# deals with URDF import/export

The biggest changes are:

  • Urdf Libary: The UrdfImporter project was renamed to Urdf. It now supports the ability to both read from and write to URDF files.
  • Create, Modify, and Export URDF models in Unity: ROS# now supports creating and exporting URDF models directly in Unity. It is also possible to modify and re-export an existing URDF model.
  • Transfer URDF files from Unity to ROS: Previously it was only possible to transfer/import URDF files from ROS to Unity. Now ROS# can send a URDF and all its meshes from Unity to a package in ROS.

Please see the Wiki, especially section 3.2, for an explanation of how to use the new framework.
