Hello ROS users,

I would like to share a set of ROS packages that provide nodes for autonomous
exploration and map building for mobile robots moving in planar environments.
More information and some help can be found in the ROS-Wiki:

The source is available via Github:

It contains ROS nodes for obstacle avoidance, basic path planning and graph
based multi-robot mapping using the OpenKarto library. Autonomous exploration is
done via plugins that implement different cooperation strategies. Additional
strategies should be possible to implement with only little overhead.

These nodes have been used on a team of Pioneer robots, but other platforms
should also do. A set of ROS launch files is included to test the nodes in a
simulation with Stage. Please feel free to try it and post issues on Github.
