Maybe try: http://www.ros.org/wiki/rqt

Owh, and from this page: http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials
I found this one, seems to be what you are looking for: http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials/UsingRqtconsoleRoslaunch

Now I try to see, thank you :)
I had seen this:

I'm still trying to figure out how to use ros, but to create a robot with a drag & drop would be very convenient to begin with :)

Ok, glad I could help. I know nearly nothing about ROS. But from what I have been able to gather it is not 'easy' to work with and get started i.e. it has a considerable learning curve.

If you could tell a bit more about your robot project, current skill set and objectives, people here might be able to help you a bit better. :happy:

I do not have a project for now, I would be interested to be able to make a face recognition.
I know a bit of c / c + +, but I know very well the language for the web (but I think that here I will not need much)
As for now I'm interested in amateur robotics much I would learn too much code.
Are there any tools to do the robot, with graphical interfaces? Drag-and-drop?
thanks :)

I don't know that many drag and drop user interfaces besides these:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/barobo/linkbot-create-with-robots?ref=card see more here about the GUI: http://my.barobo.com/view/9

Of which the first one might be to simple for you and the second is not yet available.

When I hear someone say vision, OpenCV comes to mind. http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/

Also KevinO on this forum has a PhantomX with stereo camera vision using a Raspberry Pi. You can find his thread here: http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/showthread.php?6040-PhantomX-controlled-by-a-Raspberry-Pi

Can't believe I missed this, Trossen also has some starter kits for turrets that track things: http://www.trossenrobotics.com/c/robot-turrets.aspx Just add your own NERF gun: http://vimeo.com/14968867

you've been very kind! if someone knows other gui let me know even if casperH was very kind, he replied in detail :)

Well, you have about 1 more hour to enter the Kickstarter. They got fully funded (44.000) at the moment so we will see more of them in the future. :happy:

You are welcome. :cool:

I looked around a bit (actually I just read Servo Magazine, they have this Lego Mindstorms special every month) but the graphical user interface for robotic programming seems rather limited for possible functionality. Given your skill set, knowing C and C++, Arduino seems a better choice to begin with. It is up to you. :o

Arduino has enough power to recognize faces and objects?
because if that were leaving immediately with arduino, without delay :)

Owh yeah, sorry about that. Forgot your most important functional requirement. :eek:

I was thinking more on the line of this kit (from Trossen webstore) where you control the mechanics and electronics with Arduino and do the vision software aspects with RoboRealm. http://www.trossenrobotics.com/p/RoboTurret-Vision-Tracking-Starter-Kit.aspx
