To use this panel, you must be connected to your robot via a native or Rosbridge connection. For more information on how to connect to a live ROS stack, check out our supported data sources.

Before you can publish any messages, you must configure your control pad. Click into the cog icon to open up the panel settings. Here, you can specify the topic you want to publish to, the rate at which you want to publish your geometry_msgs/Twist or geometry_msgs/msg/Twist messages, and the values in the message.
