PickNik is excited to announce the release of RQt for ROS 2 as part of the release of Crystal Clemmys.

RQt is a visualization framework built on top of Qt5 that provides plugins to visualize, interact with and introspect your ROS system. With RQt, robotics developers can now visualize and interact with their ROS 2 system through a GUI. We are especially excited to see the potential of ROS 2 exhibited through numerous RQt plugins developed by members of the ROS 2 community.

RQt for ROS 2 is supported on Ubuntu, MacOS and has limited support on Windows 10.

We would like to thank Amazon AWS for their support of this work and contribution to the open source robotics software community.

We would also like to personally thank Dirk Thomas at Open Robotics for his time and advice during this project. We never could have delivered this port in time for the Crystal release without his extremely generous contribution of time.
