0.1.8 (2021-05-11)

0.1.7 (2021-03-08)

  • Add env var support for VLP-16 (#10)
    • Add support for the VLP16 as a standard laser sensor on this platform
    • Add vlp16 to the comment block explaining supported laser scanners
    • Add the 3D and secondary 2D lidars
  • Contributors: Chris I-B

0.1.6 (2020-11-26)

0.1.5 (2020-10-30)

  • Fix the mount links for Dingo-D and Dingo-O; -D doesn\'t technically have a mid_mount (#9)
  • Contributors: Chris I-B

0.1.4 (2020-10-26)

  • [dingo_description] Switched description.launch to use single Dingo URDF which then determines which file should be loaded.
  • Add a generic dingo.urdf.xacro (#8)
    • Add a generic dingo.urdf.xacro which will include dingo-d or dingo-o as-needed. This simplifies adding support for manipulators to the robot
  • Contributors: Chris I-B, Tony Baltovski

0.1.3 (2020-09-29)

0.1.2 (2020-09-25)

0.1.1 (2020-09-14)

  • Disable gravity on the L515 links; they were causing the odom frame to drift in gazebo
  • Nav improvements (#5)
    • Expose the scan_topic argument in the gmapping_demo and amcl_demo launch files
    • Add placeholder support for the RS L515 and D455 so that the gazebo plugins work; the meshes for these sensors don\'t exist yet, but we can at least get the plugin configured & add the appropriate links for now
    • Refactor the RealSense macro to put the mesh + gazebo plugin in one place. Create a more-accurate L515 mesh out of cylinders until Intel releases an official mesh for the sensor
  • Fix missing quotes around the lidar models
  • Model Update (#3)
    • Make the yellow of the chassis more yellow and less orange
    • Fix the spawn position of the Hokuyo lidar & its focal point. Add the STLs for the LMS-1xx & Hokuyo lidars. Add lms1xx as a dependency so that the lidar macro is available.
    • Add additional mounting points for accessories, fix the position of the existing front_mount
    • Start adding support for the Intel RealSense cameras as out-of-the-box accessories
    • Update the dependencies
    • Remove the hector gazebo plugin dependency; it\'s included in dingo_gazebo, and isn\'t strictly needed in the description package
    • Refactor the lidar accessory variables, add clarifying comments to make it easier to find supported values for the sensor models
    • Fix the measurements. Keep the front/rear mounts 5cm back from the bumpers, move the bumper mounts to the center of the bumper
    • Remove the rear_bumper_mount since that\'s where the HMI is, which would prevent anything from being reasonably mounted there
  • [dingo_description] Switched to find over dirname since it was causing errors in tests.
  • Fix the spawn position of the Hokuyo lidar & its focal point. Add the STLs for the LMS-1xx & Hokuyo lidars. Add lms1xx as a dependency so that the lidar macro is available.

0.1.0 (2020-08-10)

  • Unified Dingo folders/files as much as possible, updated meshes, bumped CMake version and made roslaunch a test depend.
  • Added dingo_control; split dingo_description into separate Dingo-D and Dingo-O flavours; still much work to be done here, but preparing hand-off for Tony
  • Moved IMU
  • Updated joint names for simplicity
  • Fixed collision
  • Added description
  • Contributors: Dave Niewinski, Jason Higgins, Tony Baltovski
