Creating a ROS srv

Create package

For ROS - Matlab interface tutorials we decide to create new package clopema_matlab_tutorials. If you have not created it before then type following commands in terminal:

Create srv

The next step is to create and build ros srv file. For more information about srv visit To make this tutorial as simple as possible the srv file we will create is same as in ros tutorials.

roscd clopema_matlab_tutorials/
mkdir srv

Open CMakeLists.txt in your favorite text editor. Remove # to uncomment the following line:


Finally build the srvs:
