I have a terrible problem with geese in my yard. I've also been a heavy ROS user for the past 2 years now so I thought I'd make a robot to help chase the geese away. I have a prototype up and running, it can visually recognize geese up to 20ft away and will navigate to there location at 0.5m/s. I'd like some help on a few things if anyone is interested.

**Things I want:**
A better state machine
Autonomous docking
Mobile app support (I think this looks like a good project to work off of https://github.com/mtbii/RobotCA)

The first thing I could use help on is the state machine. If anyone has experience with using ros_smach as is willing to help (or just advise), please email me (nicholas.fragale at gmail.com)
