Hi! I merged a huge update for zakharos_core - the main part of the Zakhar project.

The repository is a Robot Operating System network where the main application consists of ego-like nodes: the consciousness (the main application) and instincts (interruptions). Each of them operates with concepts in the manner as our mind works.

As I already said, my aim is to make a robot that behaves like an animal, and hence having more understandable for the user behavior.

After this update the next step is to integrate my already developed emotional core , which is basically an attempt to recreate the endocrine system of alive organisms.

Returning to the update. Currently the robot uses three ego-like nodes:

The ROS-network is shown on the picture bellow. Also have a look at the robot in action on a video. Thanks!
