      Interesting. I hadn't looked into ROS before. Looks like a little Linux based pakage for controlling robots. Does the robot have to be completely autonomous, or can it do all of it's thinking elsewhere? If the latter, then it'd be possible to just have the robot send its status/data via an ad-hoc wifi network, and have a computer with the AForge.NET application send commands back.
      Otherwise, yeah, there's definitely an integration headache. I'm not sure how dependent AForge.NET is on specific Windows .NET architecture, but it *may* be possible to compile it with Mono on Linux.
      Either way, yeah, sounds like it's more of a "would be nice" thing that would take a while to get up and running.

      Sounds interesting, but would need to be "bridged" into ROS. That's
      *advanced*, I'm a *ROS BEGINNER*. (but I like it).
