ros distribution sandbox
This repo maintains a lists of repositories for each ROS distribution
ROS communications-related packages, including core client libraries (roscpp, rospy, roslisp) and graph introspection tools (rostopic, rosnode, rosservice, rosparam).
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.
Core ROS packages
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.
A CMake-based build system that is used to build all packages in ROS.
A set of ROS packages for keeping track of coordinate transforms.
Packages for common geometric calculations including the ROS transform library, "tf". Also includes ROS bindings for "bullet" physics engine and "kdl" kinematics/dynamics package.
Allows you to publish the state of a robot (i.e the position of its base and all joints) via the "tf" transform library
ROS-independent library for dynamic class (i.e. plugin) introspection and loading from runtime libraries
A command-line tool for retrieving information about ROS packages available on the filesystem
Package used to retrieve resources of different kinds, e.g. http://, file://, the ROS specific package://, etc.
A ROS-independent package for logging that seamlessly pipes into rosconsole/rosout for ROS-dependent packages.
ROS common_tutorials stack migrated from https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/common_tutorials/branches/common_tutorials-0.1/
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.
Client library for writing ROS nodes in idiomatic Common Lisp
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.
ROS C++ message definition and serialization generators
Headers for URDF parsers
Maintains a bond (i.e. heart beat ) between ROS nodes and provides feedback when the bond is broken
Code used in tutorials found on ROS wiki
Homebrew Formula for common system ROS dependencies
Library for loading/unloading plugins in ROS packages during runtime
Packages related to gathering, viewing, and analyzing diagnostics data from robots.
