Gentoo Overlay for ROS packages
This repo maintains a lists of repositories for each ROS distribution
Library for loading/unloading plugins in ROS packages during runtime
ROS communications-related packages, including core client libraries (roscpp, rospy, roslisp) and graph introspection tools (rostopic, rosnode, rosservice, rosparam).
ROS-independent library for dynamic class (i.e. plugin) introspection and loading from runtime libraries
A CMake-based build system that is used to build all packages in ROS.
A command-line tool for retrieving information about ROS packages available on the filesystem
Contains packages for modeling various aspects of robot information, specified in the Xml Robot Description Format (URDF). The core package of this stack is urdf, which parses URDF files, and constructs an object model (C++) of the robot.
Commonly used messages in ROS. Includes messages for actions (actionlib_msgs), diagnostics (diagnostic_msgs), geometric primitives (geometry_msgs), robot navigation (nav_msgs), and common sensors (sensor_msgs), such as laser range finders, cameras, point clouds.
Headers for URDF parsers
Allows you to publish the state of a robot (i.e the position of its base and all joints) via the "tf" transform library
Xacro is an XML macro language. With xacro, you can construct shorter and more readable XML files by using macros that expand to larger XML expressions.
Contains packages for converting collada files into URDF
Core ROS packages
ros distribution sandbox
A set of ROS packages for keeping track of coordinate transforms.
A procedural python-based task execution framework with ROS integration.
Provides a standardized interface for interfacing with preemptable tasks. Examples of this include moving the base to a target location, performing a laser scan and returning the resulting point cloud, detecting the handle of a door, etc.
Lint macros for ROS packages
Allows one to create "nodelets" -- ROS node-like entities that run within the same process so as to avoid IPC and serialization overhead
Clone of the old roslisp_common SVN repo from code.ros.org.
Standalone URDF parser for Python.
Maintains a bond (i.e. heart beat ) between ROS nodes and provides feedback when the bond is broken
A ROS-independent package for logging that seamlessly pipes into rosconsole/rosout for ROS-dependent packages.
Standalone Python library for generating ROS message and service data structures for various languages
Packages related to gathering, viewing, and analyzing diagnostics data from robots.
Packages for common geometric calculations including the ROS transform library, "tf". Also includes ROS bindings for "bullet" physics engine and "kdl" kinematics/dynamics package.
