Assignment 0: Player/Stage/Gazebo "Hello World" program

In this assignment, due by the start of class Week 2, you are to familiarize yourself with Player/Stage/Gazebo. Install the programs on your computer (instructions here: [[1]]).

To demonstrate that you have a working simulation environment, modify an existing example simulation (config files:Media:Psg-config.zip, or from the Player/Stage/Gazebo project) and program a simple robot to move around in the world. Take a screenshot of your robot running in Stage or Gazebo and send it to the TAs with a short description of what you used and how you modified it. This is an informal assignment (i.e., not graded), but it is required for future assignments, and we want to make sure all installation/configuration issues are resolved before the real programming assignments begin next week.
