Neato XV-11 Driver for ROS, albany-ros-pkg

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

All,

I would like to announce the availability of a simple driver for the Neato Robotics XV-11 for ROS. The neato_robot stack contains a neato_driver (generic python based driver) and neato_node package. The neato_node subscribes to a standard cmd_vel (geometry_msgs/Twist) topic to control the base, and publishes laser scans from the robot, as well as odometry. The neato_slam package contains our current move_base launch and configuration files (still needs some work).

I've uploaded two videos thus far showing the Neato:

I also have to announce our repository, since we've never officially done that: albany-ros-pkg.googlecode.com

I hope to have documentation for this new stack on the ROS wiki later today/tonight.
