These are my links for April 15th through April 22nd:
- Documentation – ROS Wiki – "ROS (Robot Operating System) provides libraries and tools to help software developers create robot applications. It provides hardware abstraction, device drivers, libraries, visualizers, message-passing, package management, and more."
Very popular and open source service/component based robotics framework.
- PCL – Point Cloud Library – "The Point Cloud Library (or PCL) is a large scale, open project for point cloud processing.
The PCL framework contains numerous state-of-the art algorithms including filtering, feature estimation, surface reconstruction, registration, model fitting and segmentation. "
Or, a library for doing stuff with all that data you get out of your Kinect…
- Usarsim – The virtualisation software used for the Robocup Rescue Simulation league. Built on Unreal Tournament!
- SourceForge.net: moast – "MOAST (Mobility Open Architecture Simulation and Tools) is a hierarchical architecture that is an implementation of NIST's RCS reference model architecture. It is intended as a general purpose research tool with applications ranging from low-level robotic control to behavior generation for groups of heterogeneous robots."
- Robotics – FedoraProject – The beginnings of a Robotics spin of Fedora. Includes Fawkes, Player/Stage and the Robocup Soccer Simulator.
All it really lacks is some documentation, let's hope they fix that soon!
- Fawkes | Robot Software Framework – "Fawkes is a component-based Software Framework for Robotic Real-Time Applications for various Platforms and Domains."
This is the component based robotics framework chosen for the Fedora Robotics Suite.
Looks rather good though somewhat lacking in begginer documentation. A Fedora GSOC project should take care of that.
- User Scripts – Termite Misdirection – "I really hate that submitting or updating a bug on Bugzilla leaves you at post_bug.cgi or process_bug.cgi, and mashing refresh wants to resubmit. Bugzilla should really redirect itself, but here's a user script to do this ourselves." – I hate it too, thanks for fixing it Will!
