I am pleased to announce the development of a ROS package for the Merlin
miabotPRO mobile robot platform. I have created a git repository for the
code here:


There is some initial documentation here:


and, ROS specific here:


The initial ROS wiki entry here:


The package has been tested as running and building in ROS/cturtle on
Ubunutu. I could use some pointers on:

* What else do I need to do to make installation work well for other users
* How do I get a ROS wiki page to enhance the documentation
* Anything else I have missed!

Currently, the package supports supports all the messages to run the robot
using the ROS NAV stack - although all the miabotPRO peripheral functions
are available on the comand line via the driver.


This is my first ROS package (and Linux program!) so your help and further
advice would be gratefully received!

Best regards,
