Hi everyone,

PAL Robotics is pleased to announce the release of the
diff_drive_controller that became available in Hydro and Indigo in the
first quarter of 2014.

*For those who already know it*, I'd like to ask you to add your robot(s)
to the wiki page with a moderately sized image and name:

*For those who are new to it,*
For documentation refer to:

As the name suggests, this controller moves a differential drive wheel

   - The controller takes geometry_msgs::Twist
   <http://docs.ros.org/api/geometry_msgs/html/msg/Twist.html> messages as

   Realtime-safe implementation.
   - Odometry computed and published from open or closed loop
   - Task-space velocity and acceleration limits
   - Automatic stop after command time-out

The controller will soon support skid steer platforms as well.


Bence Magyar
