I have to control more than one robot at a time. The robots are administered by a central ROS server and can be displayed and controlled using ROS RVIZ at the same time. Every robot runs in a distinct name space such that same topics (like 'move_base/simple_goal') of different robots do not collide.
I was now looking for multiple navigation goal buttons in the tool panel of RVIZ, one for each robot. Currently I have to change the goal topic of the tool each time I intend to give the next robot a moving command. That is not very sophisticated and annoying.
Is there a simple way to have multiple buttons on the toolbar with the same functionality? So far I found nothing that would help.
PS: I am not interested in running ROS cores on each robot and/or opening different instances of RVIZ, just in case someone is about to suggest anything like this ;)
Really appreciate any help and thanks in advance. J.Buesch
