[ros-users] tcpros on ethernet-enabled embedded devices

Yes, I wrote rosduino as as an experiment.  It's a minimal stand-alone
TCPROS client, and while it does actually join ROS and send/receive messages
completely standalone, the thing is a bit of a stretch for the Arduino's
meager resources.  The other packages mentioned above are a better solution,
if the embedded device has a serial interface.

That said, it might be interesting to revisit rosduino, targeting more
capable MCUs.  Perhaps ARM with lwip?  Mike, what network stack are you
running on the M3?
