Rosbridge: ROS for Non-ROS Users
TLDR
We present rosbridge, a middleware abstraction layer which provides robotics technology with a standard, minimalist applications development framework accessible to applications programmers who are not themselves roboticists. Expand

Loopy Belief Propagation as a Basis for Communication in Sensor Networks
TLDR
We investigate the ability of loopy belief propagation to function under the stressful conditions likely to prevail in sensor networks, due to its compact implementation and distributed nature. Expand
