ROSCon 2015: Space is filling up fast + Live streaming

* For first time, this year it looks like we're going to hit the
maximum capacity of the ROSCon venue, at which point we'll have to
close online registration and not offer on-site registration.  If
you're planning to register for ROSCon 2015, you should do it soon!

* Also for the first time, this year we're going to live-stream the
ROSCon presentations online, free of charge.  We're able to offer this
benefit to the community because of generous sponsorship from our
friends at Qualcomm; thanks to them!  So if you can't join us in
person in Hamburg, you can follow along online.  We'll post details of
the live-streaming system as we get closer to the event.  We will also
be recording the presentations and posting them afterward, as we've
always done.

First MoveIt! Community Meeting Slides and Recording

Hello everyone,

Thank you again for coming to the meeting and thanks to the presenters for making this a fantastic meeting. There were more than 240 people registered and more than 150 who attended from all over the world. I apologize to those running Ubuntu who had issues joining us (using Chrome was the suggested solution for the future).

The recording of the meeting is available online: https://youtu.be/D5rs9uLrveg

The slides from the meeting are posted here: http://www.sachinchitta.org/blog/report-on-the-first-moveit-community-meeting

MoveIt! now has a twitter account for updates: <at> moveitrobot

Feel free to let us know (on the moveit-users mailing list) if you have any feedback.

Best Regards,

New sig for Shadow Robot

Hi all,

I just created a SIG to synchronize discussions around our robots and software: http://wiki.ros.org/sig/shadow_robot

The global aim is to facilitate discussion with our user base. For example, we're in the process of refactoring our repositories right now to make for an easier release process and more modular approach. During that process we'd love to have more feedback from our end users but it is quite hard for us to reach them. We also think that it'd be a good place to discuss different uses of our hardware / software, sharing exciting demos or tutorials, discussing new features, etc.

If you are using our software (the Shadow hand simulation or real Hardware, the Cyberglove package, etc...), I hope you'll be joining that list!

Cheers,

Ugo

Real-time stereo vision integration into ROS

Dear all,

I'm glad to announce the ROS integration of the SP1 stereo vision system 
by Nerian Vision Technologies. The SP1 provides real-time 3D data 
through the use of a stereo camera and a powerful FPGA. In ROS, this 
data can be published as a point cloud or as a disparity map.

You can find the wiki page for the ROS node here:
http://wiki.ros.org/nerian_sp1

Further information about the SP1 system can be found on the product page:
http://nerian.com/products/sp1-stereo-vision/

The ROS node and the API code are published under the MIT license, and 
can thus be freely modified and redistributed.

Best regards,
Konstantin Schauwecke
