rqt_ez_publisher

I released rqt_ez_publisher for hydro and indigo.
rqt_ez_publisher automatically creates GUI for publishing topics.
(It is a plugin for rqt, which is standard GUI tool of ROS.)

It is similar to rqt_reconfigure, which is for parameters, but rqt_ez_publisher
is for topics.
Although rqt_reconfigure requires some config files,
rqt_ez_publisher needs nothing. All you have to do is select a topic from list.

This video shows how it works.

For more detail, please read wiki page.

Any feedback is welcome. Please make a issue at GitHub.

Dependency conflict in ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04 due to libsdformat

Hi,

 

I've attempted to upgrade from ROS Hydro to ROS Indigo after upgrading my Ubuntu Precise to Ubuntu Trusty. However, I'm getting conflicts after

installing ros-indigo-desktop-full.

 

Quick summary:

 

$ apt-get -f install

The following NEW packages will be installed:

libsdformat-dev{a} libsdformat1{a}

The following partially installed packages will be configured:

gazebo2 ros-indigo-desktop-full ros-indigo-gazebo-plugins ros-indigo-gazebo-ros ros-indigo-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros-indigo-simulators

 

 

eggie <at> Idefix:~$ sudo apt-get -f install

 

Preparing to unpack .../libsdformat1_1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1_amd64.deb ...

Unpacking libsdformat1:amd64 (1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:

/var/cache/apt/archives/libsdformat-dev_1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1_amd64.deb

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

 

 

 

libsdformat-dev and libsdformat1 seem to conflict:

 

 

The relevant versions:

 

$ apt-cache policy libsdformat-dev

libsdformat-dev:

Installed: (none)

Candidate: 1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1

Version table:

1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1 0

500 http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/universe amd64 Packages

1.4.11-1osrf1 0

500 http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages

1.4.11-1 0

500 http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages

 

 

$ apt-cache policy libsdformat1

libsdformat1:

Installed: (none)

Candidate: 1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1

Version table:

1.4.11-1ubuntu0.1 0

500 http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/universe amd64 Packages

1.4.11-1osrf1 0

500 http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages

1.4.11-1 0

500 http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages

 

 

As far as I can tell, it seems to prefer the Ubuntu packaged libsdformat over the ROS packaged sdfformat, I suppose this may be the source of the problem?

 

However, running:

 

apt-get install libsdformat1=1.4.11-1osrf1 libsdformat-dev=1.4.11-1osrf1

 

does not solve the problem and results in the same conflict.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Egbert

pr2_moveit history

Hi developers,

Is pr2_moveit originally developed from pr2_object_manipulation?

I'm curious if there are those out there who want pr2_object_manipulation into hydro, or if pr2_moveit replaces that functionality.

Side note:  about the pr2-users being down, we're getting it back up asap, my knowledge of linux fell short when setting up the Mailman server.

-Dash.

ROSCon 2014 Program Posted and Registration Open!

Hi Everyone, 

We're happy to announce the program for ROSCon 2014 has been posted and that registration is now open.

The early registration deadline is August 15, 2014.

The program fills two days with talks on applications of ROS from outer space to inside mines as well as overviews of useful tools for both research and product development. There will also be presentations on upcoming development and ongoing efforts to make ROS available on more platforms. 

In addition to the talks ROSCon will feature two lightning talk sessions and two birds of a feather sessions, all organized on-site. The lightning talks are an opportunity for you to have 3 minutes to present a topic of your choice: introduce a new project, recruit collaborators or users to an existing project, announce a product, whatever you like.

Immediately follow the lightning talks are birds of a feather sessions, which are an opportunity to propose and find people to talk about topics of interest to subgroups at the conference. This will be a mostly unstructured time with topics proposed on site and groups forming organically. 

Before you come to ROSCon, think ahead about any topic you'd like to propose for the BoF sessions and have some slides ready to present a lightning talk (3 slides or fewer).

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago in September!

ROS Indigo Igloo Released!


Hi Everyone,


We’re pleased to announce the official release of ROS Indigo Igloo! This is the first LTS release of ROS; it will be supported until April 2019 in parallel with Ubuntu Trusty Tahr. It will also be available for Saucy Salamander during its duration of support from Canonical as outlined in the ROS Distributions page.


Thanks to our many active maintainers it can be seen on the Indigo Igloo build status page that 643 packages have already been released for Indigo Igloo. And we expect this number to continuously grow over the lifetime of the distribution.


The main focus of Indigo development has been to clean up the core packages in preparation for the LTS support cycle. Efforts have included integrating the ROS packages with packages officially taken up into the upstream Debian and Ubuntu repositories such as console_bridge, urdfdom, and OpenCV.


With the release of Indigo, development will be transitioned forward to the next ROS release, Jade.  ROS Jade will be targeted for release in May 2015, following the new 12 month release cycle. Also with the beginning of development for Jade, Groovy Galapagos will reach its end-of-life. Releases into Groovy have been winding down and in the near future the build infrastructure for Groovy will be taken offline.


To get started with Indigo see the installation page. A summary of updates for packages can be found in the migration guide.


Although Indigo is now officially available, ROS distributions are living entities built on the contributions of the community.  Hydro Medusa has almost doubled the number of packages available since it was initially released 9 months ago, and Indigo is tracking a similar trajectory through it’s development phases.


We’d also like to take a moment to thank the many contributors to the community who improve documentation on the wiki as well as answering questions and moderating on answers.ros.org. One of the things that distinguishes ROS is the large helpful community. We now have dozens of moderators and thousands of contributors, thank you all for your contributions!


Details of the latest updated packages in Indigo are listed below as well as updated packages for Hydro.


Your ROS Indigo Igloo Release Team

<p dir="ltr"><span>Hi Everyone, </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>We&rsquo;re pleased to announce the official release of </span><a href="http://wiki.ros.org/indigo"><span>ROS Indigo Igloo</span></a><span>! This is the first LTS release of ROS; it will be supported until April 2019 in parallel with Ubuntu Trusty Tahr. It will also be available for Saucy Salamander during its duration of support from Canonical as outlined in the </span><a href="http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions"><span>ROS Distributions page</span></a><span>. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>Thanks to our many active maintainers it can be seen on the </span><a href="http://www.ros.org/debbuild/indigo.html"><span>Indigo Igloo build status page</span></a><span> that 643 packages have already been released for Indigo Igloo. And we expect this number to continuously grow over the lifetime of the distribution. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>The main focus of Indigo development has been to clean up the core packages in preparation for the LTS support cycle. Efforts have included integrating the ROS packages with packages officially taken up into the upstream Debian and Ubuntu repositories such as console_bridge, urdfdom, and OpenCV. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>With the release of Indigo, development will be transitioned forward to the next ROS release, Jade. &nbsp;ROS Jade will be targeted for release in May 2015, following the new 12 month release cycle. Also with the beginning of development for Jade, Groovy Galapagos will reach its end-of-life. Releases into Groovy have been winding down and in the near future the build infrastructure for Groovy will be taken offline. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>To get started with Indigo see the </span><a href="http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installation"><span>installation page</span></a><span>. A summary of updates for packages can be found in the </span><a href="http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Migration"><span>migration guide</span></a><span>. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>Although Indigo is now officially available, ROS distributions are living entities built on the contributions of the community. &nbsp;Hydro Medusa has almost doubled the number of packages available since it was initially released 9 months ago, and Indigo is tracking a similar trajectory through it&rsquo;s development phases. </span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>We&rsquo;d also like to take a moment to thank the many contributors to the community who improve documentation on the wiki as well as answering questions and moderating on <a href="http://answers.ros.org">answers.ros.org</a>. One of the things that distinguishes ROS is the large helpful community. We now have dozens of moderators and thousands of contributors, thank you all for your contributions!</span></p>

<br><p dir="ltr"><span>Details of the latest updated packages in Indigo are listed below as well as updated packages for Hydro. </span></p>

Robotnik AGVS: New ROS Open Platform for Logistics Transport

Hi all :)

We are pleased to announce AGVS: the new Open ROS Platform for Logistics Transport. 

AGVS is an autonomous robot for indoor logistic intra-hospital transport. The robot has Ackermann kinematics and is provided with ROS architecture for simulation and control. 

This robot is currently serving in several European hospitals, and this is the first open version released. 

The provided software includes the packages for simulating the robot in several environments, generating maps, localize and define routes through a rviz interactive marker based interface.

It is an excellent starting point for anyone developing new generation logistics applications. 

You can find more info in:

Some additional information about the robot can be found in:

Enjoy it!,

  Roberto

<span>Hi all :)</span><div><br></div>
<div>

We are pleased to announce AGVS: the new Open ROS Platform for Logistics Transport.&nbsp;</div>
<div><br></div>
<div>

AGVS is an autonomous robot for indoor logistic intra-hospital transport. The robot has Ackermann kinematics and is provided with ROS architecture for simulation and control.&nbsp;</div>
<div>

<br>
</div>
<div>
<div>This robot is currently serving in several European hospitals, and this is the first open version released.&nbsp;</div>
<div><br></div>
</div>

<div>The provided software includes the packages for simulating the robot in several environments, generating maps, localize and define routes through a rviz interactive marker based interface.</div>

<div><br></div>
<div>It is an excellent starting point for anyone developing new generation logistics applications.&nbsp;</div>
