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 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.
