Paul Hvass, Shaun Edwards (Southwest Research Institute): ROS-'X' - Focused Initiatives

Looking foward to ROSCon 2017 we're highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2017 registration is currently open.



Have you heard of the "ROS-I" or "ROS-M" projects? What about others? As ROS gains acceptance in various commercial markets, ROS-'X' projects seem to organize around them. Such markets include industrial, military, agriculture, aerial, and automotive. An overview of such efforts, some more mature than others, will be presented. The various reasons these projects form will be discussed as well as the impact on the broader ROS community. There is great potential in specialized ROS-'X' projects, but these projects also have great responsibility to ensure that the broader ROS project continues and is well supported.
