Announcement by Juan Antonio Breña Moral to ros-users

Good night,

my colleague Lawrie Griffiths and me, Juan Antonio Breña Moral, are developing a new software to bind a Lego Mindstorms NXT with ROS using the Open Source Project, LeJOS, A Java Virtual Machine for Lego Mindstorms. LeJOS has a rich API based on Java to build Robots with NXT: http://lejos.sourceforge.net/nxt/nxj/api/

This development is an alternative for the current support for NXT with ROS. The main difference between nxt_ros and nxt_lejos is the technology used to connect with a NXT brick. In this case we use LeJOS with ROSJava working together. Besides, we are testing other projects as JavaCV.

Our ROS development is located in the following URL:

https://lejos.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/lejos/trunk/ros/

Our preliminar roadmap is:

  • SLAM/MCL with Kinect and NXT
  • A new vision API for NXT

Cheers

Juan Antonio & Lawrie
