PR2 gets some refreshment from Care-O-bot

We had a really great time meeting everyone at ICRA and hearing about the various ways in which you are using ROS. We already knew about some of the robots using ROS, but we didn't expect to hear that ROS is already in use on boats and quad-rotor helicopters. There are also a dozen different robots using the ROS navigation stack. Thanks to all of you who took the time to talk with us, participate in tutorials, and show us new uses of ROS.

It was exciting to see open source gaining momentum with commercial robotics companies. Gostai was there to promote the newly open source URBI, SRI was promoting its open-source Karto mapping library, and Robosoft was also promoting its new open source offering with the Kompai robot. There should be a lot more news on the open-source front soon, so stay tuned!

Many of you asked how you can get your open-source repositories added to the ROS.org index. The answer is easy: just send us an e-mail on ros-users. We'd love to hear about what you're doing and we're looking forward to doing more "Robots Using ROS" posts in the future.
