Robotnik Automation Guardian

ROS Software Maintainer: Marc Benetรณ

http://i46.tinypic.com/25pkbx5.png Guardian is a modular robot with high mobility built by Robotnik Automation. In this page you can find the different drivers that we have implemented and all the necessary for the Guardian robot simulation (including teleoperation and AMCL/SLAM navigation).

Package Summary

Sensor Drivers

The Guardian robot could be equiped with a laser for receive the information about its environment. For Hokuyo and SICK laser drivers, see laser_drivers.

Note: In the simulation, we suposed that this laser is a Hokuyo URG-04LX.

Guardian Mobile Manipulators

To run this modifications you need to download and compile previously some additional packages.

G-WAM (Guardian + Barret WAM Arm)

G-BALL (Guardian + Schunk Powerball Lightweight Arm)
