The Fedora Robotics spin provides a wide variety of free and open robotics software packages. These range from hardware accessory libraries for the Hokuyo laser scanners or Katana robotic arm to software frameworks like Fawkes or Player and simulation environments such as Stage and RoboCup Soccer Simulation Server 2D/3D. It also provides a ready to use development environment for robotics including useful libraries such as OpenCV computer vision library, Festival text to speech system and MRPT.
The Robotics spin is targeted at people just discovering their interest in robotics as well as experienced roboticists. For the former we provide a readily usable simulation environment with an introductory hands-on demonstration, and for the latter we provide a full development environment, to be used immediately.
