ROS2 on Jetson Nano

Is there an official guide to install ros2 (foxy) on jetson nano AND ubuntu 18.04?


Hi @leogarberoglio, there are these ROS2 Foxy containers for 18.04:

It’s recommended to use the containers, but if you prefer not to, you can follow how ROS2 Foxy was installed in the Dockerfile of the containers.

I didn’t know about dokerfiles. It would be the same as a typical installation from the performance point of view? I want to use it to test ROS2 apriltag.
Another question, is jetson nano compatible with ubuntu 20.04? I mean, can I install a regular ubuntu 20 and a regular ros2 foxy from binaries?
In the same way is apriltag_ros2 compatible with ubunu18.04 + ros2 eloquent?
What could be the best combination in order to get best apriltag_ros2 performance?

Thank for your help!!!

Docker containers have the same performance as if it were installed outside of containers. Containers run natively on the device (i.e. not in a virtual machine or some other kind of emulation). Ubuntu 20.04 is not yet officially supported in JetPack, so it’s recommended to stick with Ubuntu 18.04 if you plan on using CUDA and the GPU.
