I am trying to install ROS melodic on the target Pegasus. The system I am working on has a wide variety of sensors all hosted and published by a ROS master on the same network so I am wondering if configuring the target to run ROS is a viable solution and if so how it can be accomplished. Would the steps outlined in this repository work?

The repository you mentioned is indeed a helpful reference for setting up the development environment to cross-compile ROS and its nodes. While our primary focus is not on ROS, I believe that if you are experienced with ROS, you should be able to evaluate it first to see if it meets your requirements for running ROS on the target Pegasus.

My second question would be, is it possible to use ROS sensors in combination with roadrunner? Maybe somehow modify roadrunner to run the ROS sensors?

The roadrunner is a binary release, and currently, there are no plans for further releases or updates. As a result, roadrunner does not support ROS sensors. Unfortunately, it is not possible to modify roadrunner to run with ROS sensors.

I was able to install ROS on Pegasus and configure it. I can now see all the sensor topics which are being hosted by a rosmaster on a different machine on the network. Do you have any advice for creating a sensor using SAL from the data coming from ROS?

For integrating the data from ROS into a sensor using SAL, although we don’t specifically work on ROS, Connecting camera.nvidia-ip may provide insights and ideas on how to proceed.
