R2-D2 using the Kinect

This shows some of the things that I’ve tried using WillowGarage’s Robot Operating System (ROS, http://www.ros.org) and the Microsoft Kinect sensor on my R2 unit: Speech recognition, people following, simultaneous localization and mapping. Everything shown here has tech-demo state. You can download all source code used here from https://sourceforge.net/projects/astromech-ros/.
