So, I am working on building a simple self driving tank (small) that needs to navigate a large hall. I plan to use ultrasonics, LIDAR and a Kinect. I am pretty happy with how I will build all of this. My main question is would this be easier to do in ROS or write it in Python. I have very basic knowledge of ROS but have been programming for many years (Java, Objective C etc).
I assume I will need to load in a basic map of static objects / floor plan. Use SLAM etc (which I see is possible in Python).
Sorry if this is a vague question. My hoping is someone on here who has used ROS a lot will turn round and say its the way to go
