I think it's time to split this off into a "Robot Operating System (ROS)" topic under the Linux forum.
Maybe someone will write a node for the SSC-32.
The ros_arduino_bridge code could possibly be modified.
There IS a ROS package to drive a LM tilt/pan with ROS via an Arduino:http://pharos.ece.utexas.edu/wiki/index ... y_from_ROS
It doesn't drive an SSC-32. But it's a start. Just expand it! I need a tilt/pan for my HexaTraxx Moose 'bot, which uses Ubuntu and ROS.
This needs to be expanded to fully support the BotBoarduino.
Got any good books on Ubuntu 10.04?
That is so yesterday!
Get updated to 12.10 asap - it's what I will be working with on my laptop and BeagleBoard.
A friend of mine has a new book out on ROS:
Available as either a PDF or a paperback.
OK, I need to get this book and a BotBoarduino now. I'm off to search Amazon for the book.
BTW, I finished the first ROS tutorial on my laptop tonight.
