Following from our previous short video series about learning ROS, our team is glad to announce a new video series containing tutorials that cover the Robot Operating System 2.0 (ROS 2.0).   For those that still don’t know about it, the Robot Operative System (ROS) is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot maintained by […]

  Third episode of our Learning ROS video series is out. In this video we explain how create a ROS package that allows a drone to autonomously takeoff, do stuff (or idle as it’s our case) and land (source code). Watch the last part of the video (minute 8:58) where we show a life demo of the […]

    Following up with our first video, the learning ROS video series continues with a new episode where we explain the ROS concepts of “nodes” and “topics” and show the importance and steps required to create a “catkin workspace”. The tools available in this video are available through our store.   Support the Open Source Robotics Foundation and […]

The Robot Operative System (ROS) is an open-source, framework for robot application development maintained by the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF). A ROS system is comprised of a number of independent nodes, each of which communicates with the other nodes using a publish/subscribe messaging model that can be deployed over different computers. ROS was originally […]

  Over the last year Erle Robotics has been actively contributing to to the APM autopilot project, a software autopilot to make autonomous drones. Members of the Erle Robotics team are among the main contributors of the switch to Linux and now Erle Robotics has officially joined the Dronecode Foundation. The Dronecode brings together existing open […]

This blog post explains how to connect to the Internet wirelessly using Erle-Brain running Snappy Ubuntu Core. In order to do so (WiFi mode infrastructure) we’ll use wpa_supplicant. You’ll need the following armhf packages: – libpcsclite1_1.8.11-3ubuntu1_armhf.deb – libreadline5_5.2+dfsg-2_armhf.deb – wpasupplicant_0.7.3-6ubuntu2.3_armhf.deb You can easily install these deb packages by typing: dpkg -i <package-name> Once the packages are installed, you’ll […]
