A minor software update of the platform has just become available. The following changes have been made:
- A new ROS node, ros_scenario, has been added to publish information about the current scenario. More info can be found here.
- A 3D model of a dock has been created for use in autonomous docking, which can be downloaded here (or as a part of the full asset package on the Gitbook).
- A minor change has been made to the /nav/pose topic, where local Unity coordinates are published rather than global latitude/longitude coordinates. If you prefer to continue using GPS coordinates, the local coordinate system’s origin is published as parameters (/scenario_instance/local_origin_latitude & …_longitude), which can be used to translate to GPS coordinates.
Please let us know if you have any feedback or issues with these updates. Additionally, expect more information about the jury criteria within the next week, we apologize for the delay.
