ROSCon 2016 Presentation by Mirko Bordignon (Fraunhofer IPA), Shaun Edwards (Southwest Research Institute), Paul Evans (Southwest Research Institute), Clay Flannigan (Southwest Research Institute), Gijs van der Hoorn (Delft University of Technology), Paul Hvass (Southwest Research Institute), Ulrich Reiser (Fraunhofer IPA), Nicolas Yeo (ARTC – A*STAR), Min Ling Chan (ARTC – A*STAR)
Four years after it was first launched by Shaun Edwards, ROS-Industrial is now a worldwide effort to expand and improve ROS adoption in manufacturing environments and industrial equipment. As an initiative, it is supported financially by OEMs and system integrators, whose interests are represented and requests are collected within three ROS-Industrial Consortia managed by non-profit, applied research institutions. As a software platform, it is developed by a free and open community gathering in monthly meetings and operating through a federated development model, much like the ROS developers community. The talk will showcase real-world examples and current efforts to expand the initiative and to continue addressing technical and non-technical concerns.
