The Robot Operating System (ROS) was developed to be a distributed and modular open-source platform for robotics software development — lowering the barrier to entry for engineers, researchers, makers, and educators to develop robotics applications. Join this interactive session to learn the latest thinking and industry uses with ROS and see demonstrations on how to get started using ROS. Topics in this session also include:

  • Industry examples demonstrating how ROS is being used for robots in manufacturing and production
  • Best practices and lessons learned for working with a community of DIY engineers
