From Alexander Tiderko of Fraunhofer FKIE

Dear ROS users,

I would like to create a new repository: fkie-ros-pkg

Please add that to the indexer.

The content is developed by Fraunhofer FKIE at Wachtberg in Germany. Currently under development are tools for discovering and synchronizing ROS masters in a multi robot system.


From Hai Nguyen of the Healthcare Robotics Lab @ Georgia Tech

Hello ROS community,

I would like to announce the result of our work here at Georgia Tech in collaboration with Willow. This is the first release of RCommander (version 0.5), a visual framework for easy construction of SMACH state machines allowing users to interactively construct, tweak, execute, load and save state machines. There are two stacks. The rcommander_pr2 stack contains an implementation with basic states for controlling the PR2 robot. rcommander_core contains the framework's essentials allowing the construction of custom RCommander interfaces for robots other than the PR2. The wiki doc links below also has a few tutorials for getting started with either rcommander_pr2 or rcommander_core.

Wiki-docs: http://www.ros.org/wiki/rcommander_core Repository: https://code.google.com/p/gt-ros-pkg.rcommander-core/

Wiki-docs: http://www.ros.org/wiki/rcommander_pr2 Repository: https://code.google.com/p/gt-ros-pkg.rcommander-pr2/

Just some notes: I've tested this on ROS Electric and have not done much with Fuerte yet but it will be supported soon. The wiki docs point to an older Mercurial repository, it should point to the newer git repository when the Ros indexer gets updated.
