The roshask package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program, test]

Tools for working with ROS in Haskell.

ROS ( is a software framework that provides a standard software architecture for robotic systems. The main idea of the framework is to support the development and execution of loosely coupled Nodes connected by typed Topics. Each Node represents a locus of processing, ideally with a minimal interface specified in terms of the types of Topics it takes as input and offers as output.

This package provides libraries for creating new ROS Nodes in Haskell, along with the roshask executable for creating new ROS packages and generating Haskell code from message definition files (see the ROS documentation for information on message types).

See for more information on getting started.
