Running#

During development and testing we manually started all nodes using:

ros2 run pathy <name-of-node>


In Byobu, a terminal multiplexer, this looks something like this:

This would probably be a bit of a hassle in production. ROS 2 of course has a more elegant way of launching nodes . This is a possible improvement.

Parameters#

Currently, all node arguments are hardcoded. This isn’t great. ROS 2 again has more elegant way of handling this (e.g. using parameter files ). This is a possible improvement.
