We’re happy to announce a new portal to explore and share ROS robots. http://robots.ros.org
This is a replacement for the wiki page http://wiki.ros.org/Robots as a portal for discovery of ROS robots and hardware components but should not replace either the technical documentation on the wiki, or the robots own website or homepage.
We’ve been working on this in the background for a while. And the impetus to make the switch has come from our server metrics showing that the previous page http://wiki.ros.org/Robots was causing a large fraction of our server load on the wiki, and contributing to ongoing load based service outages.
I want to give a very special thanks to @sloretz for helping migrate much of the content from the wiki into the site.
Of course this is envisioned as a site built on community contributions like the wiki has been already. It’s hosted on Github Pages and the source is here: https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/robots.ros.org and there’s a guide to contributing here: http://robots.ros.org/contributing/
The new site is much faster while giving more information and has opportunities to add new features in the future. As always contributions are appreciated for both content or improved infrastructure.
