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. This is the SLAM system we used to score top places at various competitions (1st place overall RoboCup German 2011, close 2nd best in class autonomy RoboCup 2011, 3rd place SICK robot day 2010 etc.). Further packages that are of public interest will follow during the next weeks.
