This week, we talk to Brian Gerkey the co-founder and CEO of Open Robotics about ROS and open source software.
Clearpath Robotics’ Husky UGV is an all-terrain mobile robot that weighs in at 110 lbs, and has a payload capacity of 165 lbs.
Brian Gerkey, co-founder and CEO of Open Robotics, will discuss how companies are addressing interoperability and what options are available to vendors, end users, and integrators.
All we had was a dream, some open-source code, and some very smart friends, a whole lot of them.
Space ROS is a version of ROS 2 meant to meet verification and validation requirements aerospace software must meet before being used in a mission.
In all but a few metrics the ROS community is growing and for many metrics the numbers almost doubled year over year.
The mobile base of TurtleBot 4 is built on the iRobot Create 3 educational robot, which provides an IMU, optical floor tracking sensor, and wheel encoders for accurate positioning and localization.
Fortress, the sixth major release of the Ignition Gazebo simulation software, is a long-term release that will be supported until September 2026.
NVIDIA and Open Robotics are enabling ROS 2 to run on Jetson processors for perception, modeling, and training to ease robotics development.
Unity is supporting ROS 2 due to “significant advancements and support of more hardware drivers, networking modules, communication architecture, and several robot algorithms.”
This seventh version of ROS 2 is an interim release will be supported until November 2022.
Canonical and Open Robotics announced a 10-year partnership around extended security maintenance (ESM) and enterprise support for the Robot Operating System (ROS). ROS support will be made available as an option to Ubuntu Advantage support customers. Open Robotics is the organization behind ROS. Users already taking advantage of critical security updates and common vulnerabilities and…
Open Robotics released the latest version of its Gazebo simulator, called Edifice. The release includes the latest rendering features, as well as new sensors and controllers.
Mobile robot innovator Boston Dynamics and ROS developer Open Robotics have joined the ARM Institute. ARM is working to advance U.S. manufacturing through automation and workforce development.
Microsoft introduced last fall an experimental release of the Robot Operating System (ROS) for Windows 10. This week during its Build conference in Seattle, Microsoft announced its ROS support is no longer an experiment: ROS is now generally available on Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. ROS, of course, is an open-source platform that provides robotics developers…
Open-source software for robots is becoming increasingly widespread in industry as well as academia. For some companies, the Robot Operation System (ROS) is already a competitive and innovative factor. The ROS-Industrial (ROS-I) Conference in Stuttgart, Germany, showed what developers and users are currently doing and why Amazon and Google are now using ROS for their…
Open Robotics, the organization behind the robot operating system (ROS), announced a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) to, you guessed it, set the “technical direction for ROS 2.” That will start with determining the ROS 2 roadmap, developing core tools and libraries and establishing working groups to focus on important topics. Open Robotics says its wants to…
