The <a href="http://ros.org">Robot Operative System (ROS)</a> is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot maintained by the <a href="http://osrfoundation.org">Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF)</a>. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management. It also provides tools and libraries for obtaining, building, writing, and running code across multiple computers. A ROS system is comprised of a number of independent nodes, each of which communicates with the other nodes using a publish/subscribe messaging model.
At <a href="http://erlerobotics.com/">Erle Robotics</a> we believe that Gazebo is the key tool for the future development of robotics.In order to help our community and users to simplify the process of algorithm with flying robots We’ve decided to put together a <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HN-W8qLb6g&list=PL39WpgKDjDfU9bmeoYeoUkeGk8VLKxSBq">series about how to simulate Erle-Copter with ROS/Gazebo</a>. Here are the first four episodes:
New category to discuss about the different artificial brains and autopilot boards offered by Erle Robotics (e.g.: PXF, PXF2, PXFmini, Erle-Brain, ...).
Discussion about this site, its organization, how it works, how we can improve it and general topics such as projects and new ideas.
