Here is a video of my hexapod robot running ROS visualized in Rviz. This is a simple test of the 3D and 2D mapping using RTAB-Map a RGB-D Graph SLAM approach based on a global Bayesian loop closure detector. I am thoroughly enjoying ROS, it is an amazing framework to work in. #ROS

So enjoying working within ROS. I find it remarkably easy to get things working. Below is a screen shot of ROS with a prime sense sensor visualized with pointCloud2 and depth_to_laserscan package converting a slice in order to easily use the slam and navigation packages. My robot model was easily brought in from selective exports from Autodesk Inventor. Here is a quick video of the actual robot from a previous test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP-1HebkZnU

+Kevin Ochs hmm, brave man, I assume its far more durable than the robugtix T8, which fails if it gets even minor resistance to servo motion.

I wanted to show my "in progress" ROS robot. This is a simple test of using the IMU messages to auto level the body. It has a custom hexapod locomotion stack that accepts a normal base_link TF that is converted to move the legs. It has 9 dof IMU, Prime Sense sensor for depth, Point Grey camera for vision and a onboard Intel NUC D54250 motherboard that consists of a Intel 4th Gen i5 processor 8 Gig of RAM and a 120 Gig SSD, Wifi and Bluetooth for communication to a second computer. Running Indigo Igloo distribution. Navigation stack work is still in progress.
Cheers,
Kevin

A quick test of my ROS hexapod auto leveling the body using the IMU readings. It's also the first video with the speech enabled. #ROS   #robotics   #hexapod   #robotis

Trossen Robotics and Intel released an open source robot called Jimmy. It has a Intel NUC onboard running Ubuntu 14.04 and uses the Darwin-OP framework.

Very cool. What sensor did you use, have an xtion which I'd like to try out with this.

Quick update on my hexapod robot project called Golem. I've decided to use +Google Translate's voice feature to do text to speech on the fly. It obviously requires internet to work but the voice quality is tons better than espeak or festival. You will probably need to turn up your audio since it's a bit low in order to not wake up the entire house while shooting this video.
