It seems the the link is generated automatically. I have uploaded the project to my own mbed account.

Follow the setup tutorial to the point of executing, and inclusive of:

rosrun rosserial_mbed ~/ros/lib

Zip the contents of ~/ros/lib/ros-lib/, EXCLUDING bufferedserial folder, keep the bufferedserial.lib file. Upload rosserial as a library into a new or existing program. Mbed will automatically unpack the zip file, and perform the link to the bufferedserial project.

I have a question in with Mbed on this, but the online compiler doesn't seem to have round() implemented, part of their math.h. Thus you will have to make a decision on what to do with time.h and duration.h. In any case, some decision will have to be made to the two references to round() in these two header files. After that, the example program will build.

I haven't been able to test an executable just yet, later this week.
