The gnss_comm package contains basic definitions and utility functions for GNSS raw measurement processing.
1.1 C++11 Compiler
This package requires some features of C++11.
This package is developed under ROS Kinetic environment.
Our code uses Eigen 3.3.3 for matrix manipulation. After downloading and unzipping the Eigen source code package, you may install it with the following commands:
cd eigen-3.3.3/ mkdir build cd build cmake .. sudo make install
We use google's glog library for message output. If you are using Ubuntu, install it by:
sudo apt-get install libgoogle-glog-dev
If you are on other OS or just want to build it from source, please follow these instructions to install it.
2. Build gnss_comm library
Clone the repository to your catkin workspace (for example
cd ~/catkin_ws/src/ git clone https://github.com/HKUST-Aerial-Robotics/gnss_comm.git
Then build the package with:
cd ~/catkin_ws/ catkin_make source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash
If you encounter any problem during the building of gnss_comm, try with docker in the next section.
To simplify the building process, we add docker in our code. Docker is like a sandbox so it can isolate our code from your local environment. To run with docker, first make sure ros and docker are installed on your machine. Then add your account to
docker group by
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER. Relaunch the terminal or logout and re-login if you get
Permission denied error, type:
cd ~/catkin_ws/src/gnss_comm/docker make build
The docker image
gnss_comm:latest should be successfully built after a while. Then you can check all available docker images in your local machine by
docker image ls command.
Many of the definitions and utility functions in this package are adapted from RTKLIB.
The source code is released under GPLv3 license.
