Adi_driver: ADI's sensor package released!

Hi ROS users,

We are pleased to announce the release of adi_driver package into Indigo and Kinetic. This is the driver package for ADI(Analog Devices Inc.)'s sensor products. Currently it supports ADIS16470 and
ADXL345(experimental).

ADIS16470 is a brand-new IMU, contains 3-axis gyroscopic sensors and 3-axis accelerometers. This sensor has very wide sensing range (2000 [deg/sec] in angular velocity and 40 [g] in linear acceleration) with low cost ($199 for a chip and $299 for a breakout board). It must be handy item for mobile robots, drones, manupirators and so on. Please see the detail on the product page.

This package easily enable you to obtain the 3D orientation information, using a IMU breakout board and an USB-SPI interface (USB-ISS) module. Please see the document on the github page for more instruction.

Enjoy!
