I recently stmble upon this community doing research on rosserial. I'm currently making a robot that may interest some of you. For now I need specific help with some bug that annoy me.
But first, let me explain the project. I've trying late month doing a robot that could be cheap and easy to program and interacting. I bought a Raspberry and a Arduino and begin to play a bit with those tools. Now I've a nearly functionnal robotic system that I'd like to compare to Mindstorms but DIY way. You can view what it's capable of here: [link]
