Our first ROS Spotlight showcases the most recently-published book about ROS, "Learning ROS for Robotics Programming", by Aaron Martinez and Enrique Fernández. This book is available online via Packt Publishing, a company that focuses on open source software and pays royalties to open source projects.
"Learning ROS for Robotics Programming" provides practical examples to help readers understand the ROS framework. To begin, it presents basic ROS concepts to help new users get started. The authors continue by introducing various compelling topics such as modeling, sensor integration, computer vision, and navigation algorithms.
With your new understanding of ROS, you'll be able to build your own robot applications in simulation, allow your robot to see with its sensors, and make your robot navigate autonomously.
Pick up a copy of "Learning ROS for Robotics Programming" and dive into the exciting world of ROS and robotics!
For more on ROS, you can also check out "ROS by Example".
When we started work on ROS, like most young open source projects, our greatest need was to recruit early adopters and fellow developers. So we targeted that audience: we built a wiki, filled it with documentation, tutorials, and code examples, and made the wiki the landing page at www.ros.org.
Well, times have changed. Now, six years into the project, we have a broader audience to consider. We want to reach teachers who are considering using ROS in their classrooms, managers who want to use ROS in a new product, journalists who are writing stories about ROS, and many, many others.
So, in celebration (just a bit late) of ROS's sixth birthday, we're pleased to present a new www.ros.org.
After all, a grown-up ROS deserves a grown-up website. Don't worry: the wiki is still there, as are all the other ROS sites on which we depend.
This package provides support for the Bluetechnix Argos3D P100 ToF camera
based on the PMDSKD library that is provided with the camera, along with
a detailed installation how-to and a visualization example based on rviz.

ROS-Industrial Quarterly Community Meeting
Virtual Web Meeting
ROS-Industrial will host an open forum to discuss the general direction of the program, learn about new technologies, and to publicize the work and most importantly the needs of the community. All are invited, but the main target audience for this meeting are developers and end-users.
· Introductions and Forum Overview (Shaun Edwards - SwRI)
· BRIDE Presentation and Q&A - A Toolchain for Model-Based Software Development
· Upcoming Contributions (Community)
· Wish List Discussion (Community)
· General Q&A and Upcoming Events (Shaun Edwards - SwRI)
There is no fee to attend the meeting, but registration is required.
We are soliciting community discussion about current activities or needs. Please contact Shaun Edwards if you have a topic of interest.
Check out our last ROS-Industrial virtual meeting.
We look forward to our upcoming meeting with you!
