Some tutorials to practice with ROS

It is time to practice what we have learned until now. In the upcoming sections, you will see examples to practice along with the creation of packages, using nodes, using the Parameter Server, and moving a simulated robot with TurtleSim.

Navigating through the ROS filesystem

We have some command-line tools to navigate through the filesystem. We are going to explain the most used ones.

To get information and move to packages and stacks, we will use rospack, rosstack, roscd, and rosls.

We use rospack and rosstack to get information about packages and stacks, the path, the dependencies, and so on.

For example, if you want to find the path of the turtlesim package, you will use this:

$ rospack find turtlesim

You will ...
