We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of the SDK software – v1.1.0! With SDK 1.1, you can now run the Baxter Research Robot using the latest release of ROS – Indigo! This will, of course, require you to upgrade your development workstation to Ubuntu 14.04 to take advantage of the latest ROS version. Also included in this release is a new Kinect camera example program, along with a new joint trajectory action server, that will allow smoother movements for Baxter’s arms.
