Announcing a new book "ROS Robot Programing"

Announcing a new book "ROS Robot Programing"

Hello ROS users,

I am pleased to announce a new book "ROS Robot Programing", which will be released by RubyPaper in this month.
It is the first guide book for ROS in Non-English languages.
I hope to bring up new ROS contributors in Korean, even if this book is written in Korean.
Also, I'll donate the whole royalty from this book to OSRF and open-source robotics platform projects(oroca.org). 

The contents of this book is as follows:

1. ROS, Robot Operating System
2. Installing the ROS in Desktop PC
3. Installing the ROS in VirtualBox and SBC like RaspberryPi
4. ROS Term, Communication, File and Build System, Build and Running
5. ROS Commands
6. ROS Tool (RViz, rqt)
7. ROS Basic Programing (Message, Topic, Service, Parameter)
8. Robot and Sensor on ROS
9. How to Use the Sensors on ROS
10. How to Use the Mobile Robot on ROS (Turtlebot)
11. SLAM and Navigation
12. Robot Arm (Dynamixel Servo, MoveIt!)
total pages: 392

More information about this book can be found on ROS wiki page.

Please see the fantastic cover of this book! :)

Cheers,
Pyo

Robotics <at> Seoul Tech Society


Hi all,

For ROS aficionados in South Korea, there is a seoul tech meetup on March 24th with a few roboticists presenting what is the first of hopefully a series of talks. 

Good chance to catch up and talk with some roboticists over a beer after the talks, or meet some of the next generation in seoul's tech community.

You can sign up here.

Cheers,
Daniel.

Announcing Social Robot Maggie working with ROS

Hello ROS community,

I have the pleasure to present a new robot in the ROS family. The Social 
Robot Maggie (http://roboticslab.uc3m.es/roboticslab/robot/maggie) from 
the RoboticsLab (http://roboticslab.uc3m.es/roboticslab/) at University 
Carlos III of Madrid, Spain, is working now completely with ROS.

Here the ROS wiki page for more info:

http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/Maggie

Furthermore, we would love to share what we have developed with the ROS 
community. We have published several packages in GitHub and soon we show 
some videos on how it is working.

Here the repository:

https://github.com/UC3MSocialRobots

Until now, we have released everything developed for the low-level of 
the robot. These nodes control the devices (motors, touch sensors, 
labjack controller, IR controller, servomotors, RFID, etc.) of the 
robot. And almost everything is implemented with unit tests and testing 
nodes.

We hope that our work could be useful for the community.

Best regards,

--

I was trying to add the follwinga as section 2.3, but I am getting Internal Server Error.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

catkin tools

With the new catkin_tools, there are few changed from the Catkin-y method described above. To generate eclipse-project you need to execute:
catkin build --force-cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles"


to generate the .project files for each package and then run: the follwoing script

#!/usr/bin/env bash
echo "Generating eclipse projects for all ROS projects in this directory"
ROOT=$PWD
cd build
for PROJECT in `find $PWD -name .project`; do
DIR=`dirname $PROJECT`
echo $DIR
cd $DIR
awk -f $(rospack find mk)/eclipse.awk .project > .project_with_env && mv .project_with_env .project
done
cd $ROOT Then follow the rest of the instrunction as in  catkin_make approach

Announcing a ROS driver for CH Robotics UM7 IMU.

Hi users,
 
    I'd like to announce the availability of a ROS driver for the CHRobotics.com  UM7 Inertial Orientation sensor (IMU).  The UM7 is an up-to-date device with quite good performance.
    You can see its specs at http://www.chrobotics.com/shop/um7-orientation-sensor.  The driver documentation is at http://wiki.ros.org/um7.

ROS Packages for Terabot arm

Hi folks,

I want to drop a question, does anybody working on or have any idea of ROS packages for Terabot Arm used Seekur Jr with outdoor manipulator mobile robot. As during last six month of research with the above mentioned robot, I tried hard to find the ROS packages for Terabot 5-DOF manipulator. Unfortunately,  I didn't found any such packages like RosAria, Ros Packages for Sick laser , Bumper and so on used in mentioned robot. For, more than six month, I myself working on ROS packages for this manipulator, but unfortunately couldn't able to solved it.

So, if somebody has any idea about this particular manipulator and any knowledge of ROS packages for this same kind. Please drop your suggestion and if anybody interested to join me in development of the ROS packages for this manipulator.

OpenHAB bridge - Combines ROS with Home Automation

I have written a ROS python package which provides a bridge to the OpenHAB home automation system (open source license)
OpenHAB is an open source system that connects to virtually any intelligent device, such as smoke detectors, motion detectors, temperature sensors, security systems, TV/audio, fingerprint scanners, lighting, 1-Wire, Wemo, CUPS, DMX, KNX, openpaths, Bluetooth, MQTT, Z-Wave, telephony, Insteon, weather sensors, as well as web services such as Twitter, Weather, etc. ROS also provides a basic Web GUI and Iphone/Android app for setting and dynamic ally viewing values. openhab.org/features
Give your robot knowledge of the wider world
Use Cases:
  • A motion detector in OpenHAB triggers and ROS dispatches the robot to the location.
  • ROS facial recognition recognizes a face at the door and OpenHAB unlocks the door.
  • A Washing Machine indicates to OpenHAB that the load is complete 
    and ROS dispatches a robot to move 
    the laundry to the dryer.
  • OpenHAB MQTT binding indicates that Sarah will be home soon and a sensor indicates that the temperature is hot. ROS dispatches the robot to bring Sarah's favorite beer. OpenHAB turns on her favorite rock music and lowers the house temperature.
  • A user clicks on the OpenHAB GUI on an IPAD and selects a new room location for the robot. The message is forwarded by the openhab_bridge to ROS and ROS dispatches the robot.
With the openhab_bridge, virtually any home automation device can be easily setup to publish updates to the openhab_updates topic in ROS, giving a ROS robot knowledge of any Home Automation device as well as a number of web services. ROS can publish to the openhab_set topic (or openhab_command) and the device in OpenHAB will be set to the new value (or act on the specified command).
To download and for more information:
<div>
<div>I have written a ROS python package which provides a bridge to the OpenHAB home automation system (open source license)</div>

<div>OpenHAB is an open source system that connects to virtually any intelligent device, such as smoke detectors, motion detectors, temperature sensors, security systems, TV/audio, fingerprint scanners, lighting, 1-Wire, Wemo, CUPS, DMX, KNX, openpaths, Bluetooth, MQTT, Z-Wave, telephony, Insteon, weather sensors, as well as web services such as Twitter, Weather, etc. ROS also provides a basic Web GUI and Iphone/Android app for setting and dynamic
 ally viewing values.&nbsp;<a href="http://openhab.org/features">openhab.org/features</a>
</div>

<div>Give your robot knowledge of the wider world</div>

<div>Use Cases:</div>
<ul>
<li>A motion detector in OpenHAB triggers and ROS dispatches the robot to the location.</li>
<li>ROS facial recognition recognizes a face at the door and OpenHAB unlocks the door.</li>
<li>A Washing Machine indicates to OpenHAB that the load 
 is complete&nbsp;<br>
and ROS dispatches a robot to move&nbsp;<br>
the laundry to the dryer.</li>
<li>OpenHAB MQTT binding indicates that Sarah will be home soon and a sensor indicates that the temperature is hot. ROS dispatches the robot to bring Sarah's favorite beer. OpenHAB turns on her favorite rock music and lowers the house temperature.</li>

Announcing Rhoeby - a ROS Navigation-capable hexapod robot

Hi ROS Users!

I am pleased to announce "Rhoeby", a new ROS-enabled hexapod robot. Rhoeby
is a customized version of the Robotis Bioloid kit. It uses low-cost,
light-weight 2D Scanning technology available from Rhoeby Dynamics (based
on the TeraRanger 1DOF sensor), and supports SLAM, Navigation and Obstacle
Avoidance.

== Hardware Used ==

  * Robotis Bioloid "Spider" chassis (with custom legs)
  * Robotis Cm9.04 MCU board
  * Nexus 4 phone provides IMU (and tele-prescence camera)
  * Rhoeby Dynamics 2D Infra-Red LiDAR Scanner
  * Bluetooth link to robot for command and status
  * Remote laptop running ROS Indigo

== Software Features ==

  * 3-DOF Inverse Kinematic leg control
  * Holonomic-capable gait
  * Odometric feedback
  * 2D LiDAR scanning
  * ROS node for robot control

If interested, you could find more information at:

Thanks and Best Regards!

John Jordan
