This GUI simplifies connection to a ROS Network. It also has built-in teleoperation features.
Step 1: On the 'Connection' panel, set the IP address of the Master node.
Step 2: Click 'Connect'. Successful connection will result output like this
'Initializing global node /matlab_global_node_88657 with NodeURI http://192.168.2.100:57590/' appearing on Matlab command prompt.
Step 3: On the 'Topics' panel, click on 'List out Topics' to see the topics available. Select the topics that you wish to publish/subscribe and click 'Publish' or 'Subscribe'.
Step 4: On the 'Nodes' panel, click on 'List out Nodes' to see the nodes available. Their respective subscriptions, publications and services are shown on the right.
Step 5: Use the Control buttons (Move Front, Move Right...etc) to control the simulated robot in gazebo or the actual robot.
