The Personal Robotics Lab in the School of Mechanical, Industrial and
Manufacturing Engineering at Oregon State University is proud to announce
our repository, orst-ros-pkg. Our current released stacks and packages are:

 - http://ros.org/wiki/head_tracking - ROS Wrapper around Fanelli et al.'s
Real Time Head Pose Estimation from Consumer Depth Cameras [1]. Provides
6-dof head pose estimation using data from a Kinect or other similar device.
 - http://ros.org/wiki/3d_interaction - Contains packages for projecting
interfaces into the world, and interacting with those interfaces, as well
as utilities for camera-projector calibration, and intersecting rays with
various types of world models.
 - http://ros.org/wiki/projected_interface_builder - A utility for
graphically building projected interfaces to be used with the above stack.
 - http://ros.org/wiki/ir_comm - A simple ROS interface to the phidgets_ir
board enabling learning IR codes, and using ROS messages to transmit codes.

The above packages were developed as part of the Robots for Humanity
Project [2].

 - http://ros.org/wiki/rostop_gui - RQT plugin for monitoring ROS
processes, similar to Ubuntu's System Monitor.
