Call for Openni2 PPA maintainer

Hi,

As we are preparing for the upcoming Jade release we've identified Openni2 as a dependency of commonly used sensors which is unavailable from Ubuntu and needs to be packaged for Utopic and Vivid.

Up until Trusty we have been pulling it from the PCL PPA [1] with the PCL packages. However that PPA is being retired as PCL has been included upstream. [2]

Openni2 is also in the process of being submitted upstream to Debian [3][4] and from there it will propagate to Ubuntu. But for now it's not available on the Ubuntu distributions Utopic and Vivid.

We'd like to ask that someone in the ROS community who uses Openni2 would be willing to setup a PPA on Launchpad and maintain a backport of the packages for Ubuntu until it is included upstream. It should mostly be a matter of taking [3] and checking for any differences between the Ubuntu and Debian packaging and uploading it to a Launchpad PPA. After verification and testing the resultant packages can then be imported into the ROS repositories to be made available to all ROS users.

Jade meta packages

Does anyone know if jade will have the ros-base, ros-desktop, and ros-full packages? They do not seem to exist currently in the apt repos, and I am not sure if this is because they are deprecated, or just have not been built just yet.

Thanks!

Modbus Cognex In-Sight Camera and Siemens S7 PLC ROS wrapper

Dear ROS users,

We just published 3 packages for interfacing, using Modbus TCP communication,your ROS workstation with some industrial component like the famous In-Sight camera from Cognex and the Siemens S7 PLC.

You'll find a link and a quick tutorial for all those three packages:
http://www.generationrobots.com/blog/en/2015/04/cognex-siemens-plc-modbus-pkg/

Modbus package : http://www.generationrobots.com/en/content/87-modbus-package
Cognex In-Sight Modbus package : http://www.generationrobots.com/en/content/88-modbus-cognex-in-sight
Siemens S7 PLC Modbus package : http://www.generationrobots.com/en/content/89-plc-siemens-modbus-ros-package

Here is also the link to the ros wiki :

[robots] Erle Robotics brain and vehicles

Hi everyone,

I'd like to introduce Erle-Brain (https://erlerobotics.com/blog/product/erle-brain/) Linux autopilot, a ROS-powered embedded computer that allows to build different kind of drones and robots.

Using Erle-Brain we've build several vehicles (Erle-Copter, Erle-Plane, Erle-Rover, ...) displayed at http://wiki.ros.org/Robots and we keep exploring new paths. The brain runs the APM software autopilot (in Linux) which connects with ROS through the mavros bridge allowing to control the robots simply publishing to ROS topics.

This ROS package (https://github.com/erlerobot/ros_erle_takeoff_land) shows a simple example on how to autonomously take off and land a VTOL powered by Erle-Brain.

We are really excited to see what people can do with our Brain and vehicles so we've decided to launch a program that offers discounts for educational and research purposes called dronEDU (dronedu.es).
Feel free to get in touch with us if you are interested.

Kind regards,

Jade Beta Preparations

Hello everyone!

I want to give an update on the next release of ROS, a.k.a ROS Jade, and let you know how you can help. We're preparing for the Beta to be announced between now and the end of the month.

What does beta mean? It means that we have released a version of all of the packages we need for a release. The practical implication is that anyone can install ros-jade-desktop-full from apt-get and try it out. But we're not quite there yet, and that's where you come in. I've put together a page which lists the packages that are directly or indirectly a dependency of desktop-full:


Please have a look at this page and see if you're responsible for any of the packages or repositories that are unreleased, and therefore blocking, and try to get a release done as soon as you are able. If you need help please contact the ros-release <at> lists.ros.org mailing list and ask for help.

If you'd like to help in another way, please take a moment and look at the Jade specific wiki pages and add to them if you think it is necessary:


I've also copied over the installation instructions from indigo to jade, so please have a look at those and look for typos and copy-paste errors.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help in getting us to an on-time jade beta.

Silicon Valley ROS Workshop - May 2


ROS Training Session Course 101

 

The Beagle Bone Black (BBB) development board is a great way to begin using ROS for any size Robot project. We have designed a class to get you past the steep learning curve so you can start using your BBB and ROS effectively. This course will focus on basic IO, motor control and switch sensing. At the end of the class you will have:

·         A working BBB running the latest ROS

·         A reference BBB interface for a 2 motor controller (we will be using LEDs instead of motors)

·         Your laptop running ROS via a virtual machine

 

Time & Place:

Saturday, May 2, 2015

9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

HackerDojo

Mountain View, CA

 

Sign-up here:  Eventbrite

 

More Info here:  http://ros-training.com/

We appreciate your interest!

 

We look forward to seeing you at our next workshop!

ROS Jade Turtle Logo and Release T-shirt

With each release of ROS we have a tradition of having a logo and making t-shirts. ROS Jade Turtle is coming out in May. Show your ROS colors and support this tradition!  Visit the Teespring Campaign page here to order your shirt. 


Proceeds from shirt sales go to supporting the costs associated with developing and maintaining ROS, including hosting the wiki and running the build farm. 

There are both mens and womens sizes as well as hoodies available. 

Order now and if this campaign is funded we expect the shirts to arrive approximately when ROS Jade Turtle is released. The campaign closes on May 11th don't wait too long to order. 

Here's a copy of the full logo:

Request for Comments on integration with AllJoyn

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone worked on bridging between ROS an AllJoyn or used both and have thoughts about potential integration paths?

We recently have talked with some members of the AllSeen Alliance and wanted to gauge the level of interest in AllJoyn from the ROS community.

If you're not familiar with AllJoyn and you're curious you can get more information here: https://allseenalliance.org/developers/learn

Links to all slides

HI,

I was wondering where if there was a common place where all slides used for presentations in various conferences and meetings are stored, both for ROS and ROS-I?

Secondly, Is there a standard ROS/ROS-I template for slides I could use? if so, where can I find it?

I presume the above are under an open license?

 Thank you!

The 5th meetup of ROS Japan Users Group in Nagoya.

Hi, everyone. 
I’m Yutaka Kondo, a member of ROS Japan Users Group (JUG).

On April 11th, the 5th meetup of ROS JUG was successfully done.
This is the first time to be held not in Tokyo, but in Nagoya (the middle of Japan) 
thanks to the cooperation of the Chubu University (http://www.chubu.ac.jp/english/).
Over 50 people in total joined. The growth of Japanese ROS culture is now promising!

We had a hands-on seminar for ROS beginners, 3 presentations and 5 lightning talks as following.
(I named the english titles based on the original Japanese ones.)

# Hands-on seminar
