Hello,

which Version of ROS would you recommend for the KUKA Youbot.

The manufacturer ships it with ROS Fuerte, which seems to be quite old. I have seen that there are packages for ROS Groovy and also for ROS Hydro. Is it save and recommended to update?

I am currently testing ROS Hydro on a youbot running Ubuntu 12.04 and will report my findings.

could you elaborate this a bit more? Are there many people already using ROS Hydro? Have you made the best experiences using ROS Hydro?

There was a release and all the repos are moving to hydro-devel. You can also find the driver wrapper in hydro : http://www.youbot-store.com/youbot-developers/software/ros/ros-hydro-wrapper-for-kuka-youbot-api

There are Hydro packages. Wiki pages of the most of packages weren't created (now I have done), which can be why it was a bit hard to find ROS packages.
