Hi Gonçalo,

I posted some of my works with Gazebo in the GazeboUsers website. Have a look there, I hope it helps. I've got higher resolution versions of these images also.

  Hi everyone!

  The ROS day at ISR is happening! I made a wiki page for the event at


  The reason for this mail however is that I would like to refer Stage and Gazebo on my presentation, however I have never used Gazebo and I need a cool screenshot.

  Could anyone send me a nice screenshot from Gazebo running? Something that will make the audience jaws drop!

  Thanks in advance!

    Hi Dejan!

    Just talked with the guys from the MRL, and it seems they are all very excited about learning ROS :D

    I now have a pretty good collection of presentations to make my ROS talk. The problem will be to keep it short! I would like to go from what ROS is and what it's for to talking about our repository and code licensing.

    For the practical part I believe that what you suggested is perfect, I'm not sure we'll have time for more than that. Anyways we just want to go into the basics, we don't want people to get the idea ROS is very complicated. Also we should keep it generic in order to attract people from all areas, although this is the Institute of Systems and Robotics we have a wide range of research, some people will be very interested in manipulation while others will be interested in mobile robot navigation. We also have a strong computer vision group. But we believe that if we show them the basic stuff they can get the feel of things and just dig deeper into the areas that interest each of them.

    We have a bunch of Roombas here but I'm not sure some people would be interested on working with them on the workshop. Still I would like to get people working with something that actually moves. After all we're in this business cause we all love toys :D

      Hi Gonçalo,
      great idea, you shall get in my colleagues from
      as well.

      As Ken already pointed out, we recently carried out a ROS Fall School
      for 60+ ROS newbies and we thus have a bunch of theoretical as well as
      practical material that you may recycle. I especially recommend you to
      have a look at talks 2 to including 7 in the following list:

      For the practical part you wonna start with these:

      And if you want a bit more advanced stuff you can have them make Day1
      and Day2 tutorials from the Fall School:

      cheers, D.
