This page lists agreed-upon "rock standards", i.e. conventions how things should be implemented / named / ... in Rock

When applicable, Rock tries to be compatible with ROS REPs, i.e. to follow the same conventions than ROS. In this case, a link to the corresponding ROS REP is directly given. As a general guideline, if a convention is missing here, looking up what convention is used in ROS and starting a discussion on the ML *on the basis of said ROS convention* is considered a very good process

Accepted Rock Guidelines

  • [RG1] Standard Units of Measure and Coordinate Conventions ROS REP 103 - ATTENTION: In deviation from ROS REP 103 world coordinate frame convention is North-West-Up (NWU)

  • [RG4] C++ library packages RG4
  • [RG5] Ruby packages RG5
  • [RG6] Editor Configuration RG6
  • [RG8] Meta-data in log files RG8
  • [RG9] GitHub-based development process RG9
  • [RG10] Transformer Configuration RG10

Pending Rock Guidelines
