Anyone using ROS?
March 20, 2011
I just downloaded ROS and intend to begin learning it throughly. Unfortunately, I'm learning to use Linux for the first time as well. In the past I always used Matlab for everything because I was in school and licenses weren't an issue for me. Now that I'm in "the real world" and see how much Matlab costs, I'm ready to move on. Not to mention ROS seems to have alot of great people working on it.
I'm wondering if anyone here has used it much, if so what are you doing with it? I'll be doing some SLAM type projects with some expensive sensors, but was wondering if anyone uses it with cheaper hobby robots.
