Hi everyone,

We have put together a small stack with drivers for Phidgets devices:


The stack contains a package that downloads and installs the official 
Phidgets C API, as well as a C++ API which we've written on top of it. 
The C++ API provides a single Phidget class which specific devices can 
inherit from. We have currently implemented two Phidgets: the 
PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 IMU and the Phidget IR, as well as ROS nodes for 
both of them.

Extending the stack with more Phidget device classes should be fairly 
easy using the API.

More info is available at the wiki pages. As always, we welcome any 
feedback and suggestions.
