This repository contains various utilities that were developed for doing multi-robot communication research within the ROS framework. It is developed around the capabilities of IEEE 802.15.4 radios, i.e. low-level point-to-point communication with limited use of rate adaptation, power control, or complicated MAC. It currently consists of three pieces: (1) ros messages for doing arbitrary point-to-point packet communication, (2) a C++ class-based communication simulation library/ros node, and (3) a C++ wrapper for doing to point-to-point predictions of communication (for within communication-aware algorithms).
