LMR ROS platform

What is ROS

Here is a list of robots running ROS

I think it would be great if we could make a minimalistic, cheap, easy reproducable, simple robot running on ROS. Something to get people started with ROS, as the isolated and primary goal.

If any one out there is up for that challenge, let me know, and I'll support by such things as getting it in the menus of LMR, perhaps make videos about it, and get it on the official ROS pages, maybe turn it into a "start here" tutorial etc.

Anyone using ROS?

Hello all, 

I just downloaded ROS and intend to begin learning it throughly. Unfortunately, I'm learning to use Linux for the first time as well. In the past I always used Matlab for everything because I was in school and licenses weren't an issue for me. Now that I'm in "the real world" and see how much Matlab costs, I'm ready to move on. Not to mention ROS seems to have alot of great people working on it.
