CHANGELOG

Changelog for package rotors_description

3.0.0 (28.04.2017) -----------* Jade release

2.1.1 (2017-04-27) -----------* update maintainers * Adding pressure plugin to urdf description * Contributors: fmina, pvechersky

2.1.0 (2017-04-08) -----------* Implementing fixed-wing operation with a joystick * Implementing the rest of parameter parsing and forces + moments calculations * Parameterizing techpod mesh files and aerodynamic parameters * Adding xacro parameter for wind speed mean * The ROS interface plugin is now attached to a static model in the world rather than being attahed to the firefly MAV. * Removed dead code from the .xacro macro for the ROS interface plugin. * Removed dead commented code. * More attempted tweaks to fix errors with substitutaion_args/xacro.py. Added better debug print. * Odometry message now being captured by ROS interface plugin and published to ROS framework. Hovering example now works again. * ROS interface plugin publishing actuators and link state messages to ROS platform * ROS message interface plugin now converts magnetic field messages and publishes to ROS. * Changed the name of the robot location GPS message to nav_sat_fix (since there is more than one GPS message type). * Fixed issue with topic name differences between IMU/GPS plugins and the interface plugin. * New Gazebo message interface plugin is loading correctly when hover sim is launched. * Gazebo is now outputting debug messages to the console (verbose mode is turned on through launch file). * The ROS interface plugin is now attached to a static model in the world rather than being attahed to the firefly MAV. * Removed dead code from the .xacro macro for the ROS interface plugin. * Removed dead commented code. * More attempted tweaks to fix errors with substitutaion_args/xacro.py.

Optionally add mavlink_interface to gazebo models * started cleanup of odometry plugin * removed unnecessary mav_name_suffix and switched to using waypoint_publisher Added an optional delay parameter in the waypoint publisher to publish a waypoint at a later instance of time. * Update hummingbird.xacro use \"mav_name\" arg which has an additional suffix, in order to prevent namespace conflict when launching several mavs of the same type. * Update pelican.xacro use \"mav_name\" arg which has an additional suffix, in order to prevent namespace conflict when launching several mavs of the same type. * Update firefly.xacro use \"mav_name\" arg which has an additional suffix, in order to prevent namespace conflict when launching several mavs of the same type. * switch url website in package.xml to github repo * Added the mavlink interface plugin to the iris model via sdf file * replace middle dot with a period * update iris with upstream changes * update ardrone with upstream changes * Merge remote-tracking branch \'upstream/master\' into px4_nodes_upstreammerge3 * remove old/outdated urdf/xacro files * update launch and xacro files to new names, update use of odometry plugin * move px4 files to new directories * Contributors: Andre Phu-Van Nguyen, Fadri Furrer, Geoffrey Hunter, Haoyao Chen, Michael Burri, Mina Kamel, Pavel, Raghav Khanna, Thomas Gubler, devbharat, fmina, pvechersky
