ROSCon 2017: Reactive web interfaces with Polymer and ROS — Justin Huang and Maya Cakmak (University of Washington)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we’re highlighting presentations from last year.

Justin presents a new approach to building web interfaces for ROS applications.



This talk will introduce a set of web components, built on top of Robot Web Tools, that make it easy to build complex, ROS-integrated web applications without writing much code. Using the Polymer library with these components helps to make applications that are accessible and mobile-friendly. We will show how to use these components and show some common web programming patterns. Additionally, we will showcase some complex web applications we have developed with these tools, including a programming by demonstration interface, a web-based version of RViz, and a ROS graph explorer utility.
