I recently published an article in Servo Magazine on running ROS Hydro on BBB(Ubuntu 12.04/13.04). Subsequently, I’ve loaded ROS Indigo on a Ubuntu 14.04 image. Here is the latested cookbook. (I forgot if I posted this before - but I searched and couldn’t find it if I did.) This is part of my general efforts to make ‘personal robots’ a reality. I am working on a couple of projects including: Homebrew-RosBot, Ubiquity Robotics (Hercules) and the SV-ROS meetup working on the NASA SVR challenge.
