Installation instructions

Installation through the Virtual Box Appliance

We provide a virtual machine that comes with everything needed pre-installed to develop ROS2 applications using Papyrus for Robotics.

For this virtual machine, username is “user” and password is “p”. User “user” is allowed to use “sudo”. After logging in, you'll find a readme file with some additional links and videos on the desktop.

Manual Installation

Binary installation

Alternatively, Papyrus for Robotics can be installed either in form of an RCP (a self contained Eclipse installation) or added to an existing Eclipse installation by using an update site. Both can be downloaded from referring to the current 0.8 release.

Source code installation

See Developer installation.

ROS2 Dependencies

ROS2 Environment

If you plan to use Papyrus for Robotics to design and deploy ROS2-based systems, you need to install ROS2. The current release 0.8 supports ROS2 Foxy Fitzroy and ROS2 Eloquent Elusor

Behavior Tree Execution

In addition to ROS2, if you plan to use Papyrus for Robotics to execute task specifications in form of behavior trees, you need to install:

  • the bt_sequencer package. This package is a slightly modified version of nav2_bt_navigator with the following changes:
    • commented default plugin_libs
    • added a ZMQ logger from BehaviorTree.CPP
    • forced the execution of BT at activation (and not as response to a NavigateToPose goal request)
