Publish

Publish messages on a given topic back to your ROS stack.

Specifying the topic you want to publish your message on will automatically infer its datatype and populate the text field with a JSON message template.

Clicking into the datatype field will provide a dropdown list of common ROS datatypes. Selecting a datatype will also populate the text field with a JSON message template.

Edit the template to customize the message you want to send back to your ROS stack, before hitting "Publish".
