Bug#840791: ITP: ros-robot-state-publisher -- publish the state of a robot to tf

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Johannes Schauer <josch@debian.org>

We (Robotics section of Debian Science team) are packaging ROS (Robot OS:
http://www.ros.org/) for Debian. ROS uses   many packages already in Debian,
but also has a set of   core/toolchain/build-system packages which are not yet
uploaded. This package is part of that ROS system.

Most of the packaging work is already done, and available at

* Package name    : ros-robot-state-publisher
  Version         : 1.13.2
* URL             : http://www.ros.org/wiki/robot_state_publisher
* License         : BSD-3-clause
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : publish the state of a robot to tf

This package is part of Robot OS (ROS). This package allows you to publish the
state of a robot to tf. Once the state gets published, it is available to all
components in the system that also use tf. The package takes the joint angles
of the robot as input and publishes the 3D poses of the robot links, using a
kinematic tree model of the robot. The package can both be used as a library
and as a ROS node.

This package is required to run the Google Cartographer ROS nodes:
