elevation_mapping - Robot-centric elevation mapping for rough terrain navigation

  •    C++

This is a ROS package developed for elevation mapping with a mobile robot. The software is designed for (local) navigation tasks with robots which are equipped with a pose estimation (e.g. IMU & odometry) and a distance sensor (e.g. structured light (Kinect, RealSense), laser range sensor, stereo camera). The provided elevation map is limited around the robot and reflects the pose uncertainty that is aggregated through the motion of the robot (robot-centric mapping). This method is developed to explicitly handle drift of the robot pose estimation. This is research code, expect that it changes often and any fitness for a particular purpose is disclaimed.

jupyter-ros - Jupyter widget helpers for ROS, the Robot Operating System

  •    Python

While the Jupyter ecosystem has been widely adopted by the Data Science and Machine Learning community, the robotics community has not jumped on the band wagon yet! Most tools around ROS, the Robot Operating System, are built using Python and QT. However, using QT seperates the user away from the code. We've built an initial version of the ROS tools for jupyter notebook, trying to promote a rich, interactive experience for Robotics developers utilizing the power of the jupyter notebook.

Check out our latest news and subscribe to our mailing list to get the latest updates. LG Electronics America R&D Lab has developed an HDRP Unity-based multi-robot simulator for autonomous vehicle developers. We provide an out-of-the-box solution which can meet the needs of developers wishing to focus on testing their autonomous vehicle algorithms. It currently has integration with The Autoware Foundation's and Baidu's Apollo platforms, can generate HD maps, and can be immediately used for testing and validation of a whole system with little need for custom integrations. We hope to build a collaborative community among robotics and autonomous vehicle developers by open sourcing our efforts.

laser_line_extraction - A ROS package that extracts line segments from LaserScan messages.

  •    C++

In the above image, the white dots are points in a LaserScan message, and the red lines are what is extracted by Laser Line Extraction. This data was collected by driving a robot through Beamish-Munro Hall at Queen's University. A SICK LMS111 laser scanner was mounted to the robot. The extraction algorithm is very configurable; the above image used the parameters configured in the example.launch launch file. After applying some filters to remove outlying points, Laser Line Extraction implements a split-and-merge algorithm to determine which points belong to lines. Next, it implements the weighted line fitting algorithm by Pfister et al. [1] to find the best fit lines and their respective covariance matrices.

free_gait - An Architecture for the Versatile Control of Legged Robots

  •    C++

NOTICE: This software is not supported anymore! The authors of this software have changed their affiliation and do not work on this project anymore. Please excuse any inconvenience this might cause. If you are interested in working with the ANYmal robot, please reach out to ANYbotics. Free Gait is a software framework for the versatile, robust, and task-oriented control of legged robots. The Free Gait interface defines a whole-body abstraction layer to accommodate a variety of task-space control commands such as end effector, joint, and base motions. The defined motion tasks are tracked with a feedback whole-body controller to ensure accurate and robust motion execution even under slip and external disturbances. The application of this framework includes intuitive tele-operation of the robot, efficient scripting of behaviors, and fully autonomous operation with motion and footstep planners.

dynamic_robot_localization - Point cloud registration pipeline for robot localization and 3D perception

  •    C++

The dynamic_robot_localization is a ROS package that offers 3 DoF and 6 DoF localization using PCL and allows dynamic map update using OctoMap. It's a modular localization pipeline, that can be configured using yaml files (detailed configuration layout available in drl_configs.yaml and examples of configurations available in guardian_config and dynamic_robot_localization_tests). Even though this package was developed for robot self-localization and mapping, it was implemented as a generic, configurable and extensible point cloud matching library, allowing its usage in related problems such as estimation of the 6 DoF pose of an object and 3D object scanning.
