Changelog for package segbot_bringup

0.3.5 (2016-08-27)

  • Added xtion and led strip to segbot_v3 launch file in segbot_bringup (#75)
  • Contributors: Rolando Fernandez

0.3.4 (2016-08-08)

  • roslaunch check updates
  • add missing xacro dependency
  • comment out roslaunch checks for references to unreleased Segway packages (#70)
  • remove dependencies on unreleased Segway packages (#70)
  • unit test fixes (#65)
  • added additional flexability to the battery_diagnostics sendmail node that will now allow parameters to be set in the launch file to reflect local segbot differences (different threshold levels, etc). Appropriate values have been added for the segbot_v3 in its launchfile. The segbot_v3 controller now republishes battery information onto the topic assumed by the battery diagnostics.
  • segbot_v3: add robot monitor for diagnostics information onto the topic assumed by the battery diagnostics.
  • updated for hokuyo on segbot v3
  • fixed some problems in the velodyne processing chain
  • added segbot v3 support
  • Contributors: Jack O\'Quin, Piyush Khandelwal, maxsvetlik

0.3.3 (2015-08-05)

  • segbot_bringup: launch stop controller with segway base (#41)
  • segbot_bringup: pass correct port to Arduino driver
  • fixed launch command for arduino and diagnostics. closes #36.
  • segbot_bringup: convert to package format two (#35)
  • segbot_bringup: add diagnostics and arduino to segbot_v2 launch (#35)
  • segbot_bringup: minor launch file cleanup and formatting
  • Contributors: Jack O\'Quin, Piyush Khandelwal

0.3.0 (2015-03-14)

  • fixed default depth_registered flag to allow kinect to work properly.
  • use different filters for segbot v1 and segbot v2 due to differences between different laser models.
  • added launch file for segbot v2.
  • fixed some issues with frame ids for multi robot setup.
  • Changed the value of \"depth_only\" to \"true\" so that the published point cloud contains color information as well.

  • use roslaunch_add_files_check() to test that required launch file dependencies are declared.
  • fixed a few minor errors found on the real robot
  • added configuration with both the hokuyo and kinect in it
  • preparing to add kinect as well as the hokuyo for navigation
