Hello, I just got started with ROS and I have a quick clarification question before I get myself into the wrong mindset about thinking of ROS. Please let me know if any of the following are correct/incorrect/half-correct - thanks in advance!
I want to build a teleoperated robot. I have a 'laptop' and a 'workstation' from which I wish to control the robot.
- scenario 1: install ROS on 'laptop'. SSH into laptop from workstation to control robot. This is like Turtlebot.
- scenario 2: install ROS on 'workstation', use a Bluetooth/Wireless stack on 'workstation' to receive input from robot, make complex decisions, and send commands to differential drives & whatnot. Is the 'laptop' still necessary on the robot (translating bluetooth messages to the actuators)? Is this more like NXT, where the NXT brick doesn't actually have ROS loaded on it but rather is being controlled by a ROS-powered workstation via bluetooth stack?
- scenario 2 (continued): if ROS is not installed on the physical robot (teleop), what components of ROS would I actually use on the workstation? The NXT brick would handle all the basic moving & sensing, and the workstation only has to use ROS bluetooth to handle data?
