Did you use the "extra" USB headers on the front of the mini-ITX? I had
a conflict when I tried them (might not have done it right).
I was looking a your "Head Tracking using OpenCV" blog, and I remembered
that you said something like the ros_arduino_bridge package is being
used on the new PI Robot. Did I get that right?
I had just installed the pi_head_tracking_tutorial (electric) on my
(diamonback, oops?). And thought I'd look for a closer match to using
You are now published:
The Neato Robot and ROS
making home-made X-Ray machines, and the danger involved.
Anyway, I noticed that someone posted a great Intructable on it...and
the dangers are well documented too.
I can run my Kinnects (turtlebot bringup or just the openni launch) and get images from the camera with the ros and rviz, but it gives me warnings on the point cloud data - saying no topic found
I can use the image command and get the depth data though, and I get rgb camera data displayed in rviz - the main display stays black. Once upon I time back in diamondback I did see data here.

The link for the git package on the ros_arduino_bridge wiki didn't work
(electric), however I did copy and "git" it from my ros_workspace.
I was also able to make it (under turtlebot, diamond? electric??) with
So not sure what I've got yet, and I haven't programmed the Arduino yet.
I'm building a 'bot for Robogames (San Mateo) Robomagellan. I've
FINALLY made a little progress with cmvision on ROS Electric.
My current procedure:
colorgui.launch works, but only occasionally. Some special start up
pm. This is a new location for us. And if you think you know where the
Dojo is, be advised they've moved recently. We're at the NEW Hacker
Dojo, 599 Fairchild Dr, Mountain View, CA 94043.
Upon arrival please go to the large classroom.
I also have a partly assembled cardboard robot arm with steppers.
3D Mapping is Here
It's just about 2 years since Willow Garage ran the ROS 3D contest to see
what the community could come up with for Kinect/OpenNI applications. The
full results are here. The winner in the "most useful" category was a 3D
offering a new concentration in Connected Embedded Systems as part
of its Software Engineering masters degree program. The
concentration, which focuses on the fusion of hardware and software
as it relates to cloud-based sensor networks, will only be available

Hacker Dojo ******THE HACKER DOJO HAS MOVED LOCATION******* it is now at
599 Fairchild Dr, Mountain View, CA 94043.
tentatively (waiting on confirmation but expected) have a location at
the Hacker Dojo. I'll be sending more notices as things settle out.
The location information is below. We'll start regularizing with the
main meeting on time and start at 7:00 pm.

things I don't intend to use.
So I've got a bunch of 'excess material' which is code for 'junk' :-) which
I'm parting ways with. In a previous trip I 'gifted' a box of this stuff to
