When in your teleoperation view, you have the option of placing up to two modules as your "Sidebar views." This gives more information and context to a teleoperation session.
For example, in the Teleoperation view from our Boston Dynamics Spot robot below, we have two sidebar views: a rendering of the joint states and an above-head camera.
Sidebar views are chosen from the Teleoperation tab of the device configuration section:
Here's how to do that.
- Make your custom module as found in these instructions.
- When configuring the settings for your custom view, make sure "Show as an available teleop module" toggle is enabled:
- In the Teleoperation tab of the device configuration page, choose your custom view from the menu given by the sidebar view options:
And there you have it. Your custom module will now appear in your teleoperation session.
And remember, even though Teleoperation uses a real-time connection, your custom module can also use a real-time connection with the Data SDK, giving you the most up-to-date information while in teleoperation mode.
