Hi all!

I'm pleased to announce the first footstep planner in ROS, fully 
documented at http://www.ros.org/wiki/footstep_planner and available in 
University of Freiburg's ROS package repository 

Details will be presented in the upcoming publication "Humanoid 
Navigation with Dynamic Footstep Plans" at ICRA 2011 in Shanghai. The 
package can be directly used for footstep planning in RViz and provides 
footstep parameterizations for the Nao and a larger humanoid (e.g. Asimo 
or HRP-2).

footstep_planner is the first package in our humanoid_navigation stack, 
which will contain more packages for navigation with humanoids in the 

Best regards,
