Package Summary

A nodelet for publishing Odometry and transforms from navigation satellite fixes and IMU.


This package provides a ROS nodelet that reads navigation satellite data and publishes nav_msgs/Odometry and tf transforms. The position is converted to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates relative to the local MGRS grid zone designation.

ROS nodelet interface

ROS nodelet for converting navigation satellite data and inertial measurements into odometry and transforms.

Subscribed Topics

gps (sensor_msgs/NavSatFix) imu (sensor_msgs/Imu)

Published Topics

odom (nav_msgs/Odometry)

Provided tf Transforms



Run the nodelet in its own separate process, publishing odometry and transforms for reported robot positions and inertial measurements.
