ROS Software Maintainer: Erle Robotics
ROS Indigo comes preinstalled in the Erle-Brain 2, the flight computer contained in Erle-Rover.
This section explains how to use ROS/Gazebo simulator to simulate Erle-Rover. The main characteristics of the simulation are:
- Simulation stability and deterministic UAV response (step lock mechanism)
- Simplified ROS/Gazebo simulation launch, fully configurable through arguments to the well-used SITL launch script, sim_vehicle.sh
- Integration of the GPS sensor provided by Hector's plugin

Robot Blockly is a ROS package that provides web-based visualization and block programming tools for robots and drones. Several blocks have been released in order to use them under Erle-Rover, integrating different functionalities and sensors.

Erle Robotics maintains a Documentation that mean to instruct how to use their technology.
A video series about how to code autonomous behaviors for drones with this technology is available at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL39WpgKDjDfVfiNVG47DBi93wsh2XHKVO.
