[ros-users] Collision detection

I am wondering if there a consensus regarding continuous collision
detection algorithms/libraries amongst the ROS community?  Bullet,
ODE..?  What other libraries have been reviewed (e.g. Swift++)

Since these has been developed for gaming/CG, robot folks have to ask
about robustness: Are there any benchmarks for reliability?

That's what I figured. Thanks for the update.

Meanwhile, several people have reported success installing the Karmic
binary packages on Lucid. That's probably what they should do until an
official Lucid package repository is available.

We are currently trying to run the ros ekf package with two input
odom motor data, and gps data. The gps data is remapped to the visual
odometry message. We are receiving this error when running the EKF:
[ERROR] 1274121205.429497000: filter time older than vo message buffer

What is the cause of this error?
