ROS Lunar Loggerhead Tshirt Campaign

With each release of ROS we have a tradition of having a logo and making t-shirts. ROS Lunar Loggerhead is coming out in May. To let you show your ROS colors and support this tradition, we have setup a Teespring Campaign in both the US and the EU. Note that both these campaigns can ship worldwide.

Ordering will be open until May 9th. Order now!

This year we're also excited to provide an opportunity to order stickers for Lunar Loggerhead. We're also providing stickers for Lunar as well as all other active ROS distros Indigo, Jade, Kinetic, and a generic ROS Sticker

Please visit our page on Sticker Mule to order

Note that there's pretty good price breaks if you order in quantity. So if you have a few friends nearby it's probably worth doing a group order. And the stickers will continue to be available. The tshirt campaign ends in 20 days so don't delay ordering.

Since this is the first public announcement, here's the full graphic for Lunar Loggerhead.

Thanks to everyone who's been helping prepare the Lunar release. We're looking forward to the release in May. We expect the tshirts ordered in this campaign will arrive just before ROS Lunar Loggerhead is released!

ARIAC Qualifier 3 is open!

We are happy to announce that Qualifier 3 is now open for the Agile Robotics for Industrial Automation Competition (ARIAC)!

ARIAC is a simulation-based competition is designed to promote agility in industrial robot systems by utilizing the latest advances in artificial intelligence and robot planning. The goal is to enable industrial robots on the shop floors to be more productive, more autonomous, and to require less time from shop floor workers. You can learn more about the competition here. The top performing teams will be invited to present at a workshop held during IROS 2017 in Vancouver.

So far we have completed Qualifiers 1 and 2, highlights of which you can see here:
