Ubuntu and Melodic.

The challenge is using ROS Melodic which runs on ubuntu 18.04 on raspberry pi’s and Jetsons.  Lots of issues since neither the Raspberry or Jetson TX2 support 18.04 yet. 

So far have updated the following to Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS Melodic 

  • NUC will start running the base station AR tracking from it.  
  • Raspberry Pi  opencv  image and will start creating cameras wi raspi_camera nodes running.  
  • Fang laptop  can run the OSRF  simulation they created for the SubT challenge.

Have not had luck with the Jetson TX2’s that will be the brain stem system for Max.

New year, New location, New start

Hello Everyone, Bring Maxed-Out back to life here in Gig Harbor.
We moved up the the Pacific Northwest in June 2017.
Purchased a house in November 2017. After getting settled and acclimated time to forget the past and focus on the future of Max.
I am fortunate to be working with a large group of young college grads, who are showing interest in helping get Max doing something useful.
So time will tell, but the first thing is to get the site back up and running, dust of the slack channel and code and get Max do autonomous tasks.
