SDK Availability

The SDK is available as source and apt-get binary debian packages. Source code can be found here.

  • Supported ROS versions: Indigo and Kinetic
  • Supported Ubuntu distributions for binary packages: Trusty and Xenial
  • Supported architectures for binary packages: amd64

SDK Update

  • Use this option if the Mobility Base SDK already installed. The SDK is installed on the NUC computer before shipment.
  • Paste the following into a terminal to update the Mobility Base SDK.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && rosdep update

SDK Install

  • Use this option to install the Mobility Base SDK for the first time on a workstation that already has ROS installed.
  • The script may ask for a password. Default password: password
  • Paste the following into a terminal to install the Mobility Base SDK. This script will configure apt-get to connect to the Dataspeed server and install the Mobility Base SDK.
bash <(wget -q -O - https://bitbucket.org/DataspeedInc/mobility_base_ros/raw/default/mobility_base/scripts/sdk_install.bash)

NUC Install

  • Use this option to recreate the factory state of the NUC computer.
  • This should only be run on a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04.5 or Ubuntu 16.04.x.
  • The tool rufus can be used to create a bootable USB drive.
  • This should only be run on the NUC computer. Some operating system parameters are changed that may be undesirable on a personal computer.
  • Paste the following into a terminal to configure the NUC computer from scratch. This script will change some OS parameters, install ROS Indigo or Kinetic, and preform an SDK Install.
  • Default username: mb
