Dear community,

The extension has been rewritten to integrate the omni.add_on.ros_control_bridge extension features.
In addition, its source code has been released…

[0.1.0] - 2022-04-14


  • Source code (src folder)
  • FollowJointTrajectory action server (merge with omni.add_on.ros_control_bridge)
  • GripperCommand action server (merge with omni.add_on.ros_control_bridge)


  • Improve the extension implementation


  • sensor_msgs/CompressedImage topic

I have add the extension follow this

Hi @fzg7919

To enable the services, it is necessary to add a RosAttribute prim to the current stage and play the simulation, as shown in the following image

Sorry I don’t have RosAttribute in the ‘Create->Isaac->Ros’ ,

and I am sure the extensions are enable .


the Compressed Camera 、Follow Joint Trajectory 、Gripper Command are all normal, only Attributes lost

Hi @fzg7919

My mistake, I forgot to create the release with the compressed file for the latest version of the omni.add_on.ros_bridge_ui extension (v0.0.2)

Now, you can find it on GitHub…
In addition, you can install the extension using the link (which always pulls the latest version directly) to avoid similar situations in the future :)


It is okay now !!! Thanks very much !!!

Dear community,

It is time to move to OmniGraph :)

This extension has been migrated to OmniGraph…
The entire source is available on https://github.com/Toni-SM/semu.robotics.ros_bridge (Note: The extension was renamed semu.robotics.ros_bridge to distinguish it from the original NVIDIA Omniverse namespaces)

[1.0.0] - 2022-06-15
