ROS

ROS is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management.

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0

问题描述:在mac下装LEGO的软件,装好后发现没有可用程序,然后网上找啊找,找到以下方法:
To install LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 on Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
1. Copy all files from the MINDSTORMS CD to a folder on your desktop.
2. Open that folder and look under “Parts”.
3. Locate MindstormsUnivEdu.pkg or MindstormsUnivRet.pkg.
4. Right-click (control-click) and choose “Show Package Contents”.
5. Navigate into the Contents/Resources directory and delete the “preflight” file.
