Pose Recorder

This service receives PoseData from another service and prints the current Pose on request (pressing a button) to the command line. It may be used to gather a list of point locations for 3D object calibration with a callibrated pointing device.

It could be extended to automaticaly print the Pose every some seconds, potentially providing some kind of accoustic feedback.

It also can be used as a starting point for a lot of other services that receive some kind of events.

Needs & Abilities

The service does not have an XML ServiceDescription. Instead it describes and registers its needs and abilities in the main part of the program code.

Interaction with other Services

  • The service receives PoseData from another service and prints the current Pose on request.

How-To

This section describes how to set up and try out the Pose Recorder Service.

Installation

No special packages are required. If you want to run the python script from inside the source directory, you will need to add the DWARF python libraries (dwarf/bin) to your PYTHONPATH.

Testing

Start some service that sends out PoseData. Adjust the PoseData need in the ServiceDescription part of the main program code (there is no XML service description for this service)

Command Line Parameter

There are no command line parameter.

Known Bugs and Limitations

This service is not yet completely integrated into the configure/build system. This does not matter, though.

The predicate for the PoseData need has to be adjusted for your special use. It would be useful to print the currently used predicate to the command line. It also would be useful to print the connected service to the command line, and not to allow requesting Pose as long as no other service is connected.
