This package contains customized youBot URDFs used by the Robot Autonomy and Interactive Learning research group at WPI. Changes include slight color adjustments, the inclusion of a Kinect sensor, and color markers placed around the based (used for finding the robot using overhead cameras). This package only modifies the necessary URDF files and imports any reused files from the pr2_description and youbot_description packages. The finalized robot file that can be loaded is robots/rail_youbot.urdf.xacro.



Before installing the rail_youbot stack, be sure to install the necessary dependencies. Instructions on installing the various youBot packages can be found in this tutorial.
