Hello folks,

I'm trying to build-up a variant of SLAM that includes RFID localization. Thus, I'm in need of an RFID sensor that can interface with ROS. I've noticed that there's no gazeborospkgs for such a sensor, but there's both an RFIDSensor.cc and an RFIDSensor.hh under gazebo's sensors example folder. However, I don't know to use them exactly.

Are they complete and only need building to generate the .so ? If so, could you kindly specify the steps as I'm still quite new to the concepts.

Thanks and cheers !

It seems that there isn't a plugin to interface gazebo::sensors::RFIDSensor with ROS.

In any case, it may be fairly easy to implement such plugin. Take as example the gazebo_ros_bumper plugin (.cpp and .h). This plugin interfaces gazebo::sensors::ContactSensor with ROS.

Just in case here you can find the list of gazebo sensors and in this wiki you can find the list of gazebo-ros plugins.

Thank you for the precisions, they were helpful. However, I have no prior c++ knowledge so it's not that easy for me. I did tinker around with the code and come around with attached files. Can you please have a look at them and give some corrections and more directions ?

Thank you !
