Project: MockBot 2011.10.10-2015.09.29 Heavily under construction History: MockBot1 Electric MockBot2 Groovy Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Ubuntu Studio prefered (low latency kernel) MockBot Indigo Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Ubuntu Studio prefered (low latency kernel) MockBot Groovy/Indigo Debian Wheezy Raspberry Pi BrickPi Lego Sensors and Motors MockBot Indigo RPI2 Ubuntu 14.04 Roomba 880 Abstract: A homebrew robot system from scratch based on ros reusable modules. This projects gives an introduction for beginners to setup an own robot system from scratch using ros components. The idea is to show complete development step by step. Install ros at Ubuntu with standard debian methods NEW: Script for installation of complete ROS system from scratch 1. install basic ubuntu (e.g. Ubuntu Studio LTS 14.04, low latency kernel !!!) 2. download install script from https://github.com/mockbot/MockBot/blob/master/install_ros_dev.sh 3. sudo ./install_ros_dev.sh distro Ready! Enjoy the ros system :-) MockBot source at GitHub ------------------------ https://github.com/mockbot Read the following sources: http://www.ros.org/wiki/ http://answers.ros.org/questions/ MockBot Features: Modules: ======== Audio Soundplay Openni (kinect) Arduino (2 servos and 6 analog input ports) SLAM IMU http://robotwebtools.org/ Video_web_server and RosBridge VirtualTeleop for smartphones and browsers (Websocket) Hardware: ========= see SPEC directory Changes: Current ATOM CPU is too slow for SLAM and more. I've changed to Intel NUC i3 CPU, 8GB memory and 64GB SSD New tests with Odroid C1 and RPI2 started Result: forget RPI and C1. Doing visual SLAM needs more power and a lot of memory. I suggest: NUCi5 16GB memory and 128GB SSS.
