Announcement from Andrew Straw of HacDC on the ros-users mailing list
I wanted to announce a ros repository maintained by HacDC:
It contains packages useful for doing the assignments and such from the HacDC robotics course material located here: http://wiki.hacdc.org/index.php/RoboticsClass2011. It's been a while since I last announced a repository, so I'm not sure what info is required in an announcement these days. If the repository crew needs more info than the link above, just let me know.
My personal favorite package from this repository is floating_faces -- a set of cubes suitable for use in gazebo that are texture mapped with faces of students from the robotics class. These cubes are useful for experimenting with the opencv face tracking while using gazebo.
best regards, -andrew
