Announcement of Public ROS Software Repository

We recently announced tu-darmstadt-ros-pkg, a public repository providing ROS compatible software developed by members of the GRK 1362 at TU Darmstadt. From the start, it provides packages developed in the scope of team HECTOR Darmstadt related to SLAM and object tracking in harsh environments such as those encountered in the simulated Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) environments of the RoboCup Rescue League.
