Learn ROS and build something that is going to be useful for me in the future.

What it does

Provides ROS support for Slackware Linux and ROS-based control mechanism for communication with an mbed microcontroller form a Linux machine. I need it as extension to a previous project of mine - a Walking Quadcopter robot, in order to easily control it from my laptop.

How I built it

Using ROS-mbed libraries, cross-compilation, ROS subscribers and publishers.

Challenges I ran into

Deciding on a project

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Contributed to an open-source project (ROS)

What I learned

ROS basics

What's next for ROSDev

Including a Pixhawk microcontroller in the communication graph and using XBee and MAVLin for wireless communication.


Only part of the code in the github link was developed during the hackathon
