Getting started with the Robotic System Toolbox and ROS-MATLAB interface

Beyond the standard functions provided by the default installation of MATLAB, several external toolboxes give you access to other utilities and libraries. To enable the communication between ROS and MATLAB, we need the ROS-MATLAB interface, which is part of the Robotic System Toolbox (https://it.mathworks.com/products/robotics.html). This toolbox provides several algorithms that help us to develop autonomous robot applications, such as path planners, obstacle avoidance methods, state estimations, kinematics, and dynamics algorithms.

In addition, this toolbox implements the interface between MATLAB and ROS that enables developers to test and port their applications on ...
