Using Arduino to add more sensors and actuators

Arduino is an open source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Using Arduino to add more sensors and actuators

ROS can use this type of device with the package rosserial. Basically, Arduino is connected to the computer using a serial connection and data is transmitted using this port. With rosserial, you can also use a lot of devices controlled by a serial connection; for example, GPS, servo controllers, and so on.

First, we need to install the package. To do this, we use the following ...
