ROS 2 Network Access in MATLAB
ROS 2 shares information using messages. Messages are a
simple data structure for sharing data. To receive or subscribe to a message, use
ros2subscriber. To send or
publish a message use
ros2publisher. See Exchange Data with ROS 2 Publishers and Subscribers for more
information on sending messages.
ROS 2 services and actions enable users to perform tasks. Services use request-response communication to gather information and trigger callback functions in the ROS 2 network. Actions can be used to trigger tasks or goals and receive feedback during operation of these tasks.
